Rehearsal schedule March April May 2018
Extract from email 17th April 2018
Dear In Harmony Members,
As you are well aware I have had an ‘annus horribilis’ with regard to my recent health matters. Thank you for bearing with me during this time. However, I’m afraid matters just got worse! Following my recent visit to the UK, and tests I had there, I am sorry to report that I have been diagnosed with cancer - under my conducting arm!
As a result I have to return to the UK this weekend for more tests before receiving appropriate treatment. Having done lots of jiggling with very co-operative NHS personnel, I can confirm that I WILL be conducting the 13th May concert - although I may miss the odd rehearsal. Philip has kindly agreed to supervise any rehearsal I may miss, and will play through the programme as normal as though I was there (a lot of you don’t watch anyway, so it won’t be that different).
I feel it is the right thing to tell you all the true situation, and to appeal to you all to attend all the rehearsals - whoever takes them. Also this unpleasant news should come to you direct ‘from the horse’s mouth’ so as to cut out any misinformation that can often accompany such announcements.
So PLEASE keep selling your tickets. If you run out and I’m not there, you can always get some from La Ponderosa. Please try your best - particularly if I’m not here for an odd rehearsal to push sales - so we have a good crowd on the day.
With every good wish,
