Dateline June 2011
If you fancy a weekend by the sea, and at the same time enjoy some light music, Morecambe is the place to be at the beginning of September. The late summer weekend organised by The Light Music Society is now a well established part of Britain’s light music scene, and each year it seems to get better. On Saturday 3 September the Society will hold its Annual General Meeting at Heysham Methodist Church at 11:00am, followed by lunch. At 2:00pm the LMS Orchestra will be rehearsing (members can observe) and there will be a talk and exhibition of Light Music Memorabilia. In the evening a Festival Dinner will be held at the Clarendon Hotel, Morecambe at which the guest speaker will be Philip Lane. On the Sunday morning the LMS Orchestra will have another rehearsal, with the concert taking place at The Platform, Morecambe at 3:00pm with Gavin Sutherland conducting. For more information please visit the LMS website – www.lightmusicsociety.com – or email the secretary, Hilary Ashton:
