TICKHILL MUSIC SOCIETY
FORTISSIMO 40 YEARS NOTE PERFECT
Following an enthusiastically received performance by the Coull Quartet in 1977, five local residents decided to establish a music society which would present regular concerts featuring talented young musicians.
Some of those who appeared have gone on to achieve world fame, for example, soprano Dame Emma Kirkby and lutenist Anthony Rooley, double bassist Dominic Seldis, trumpeter Alison Balsom, pianist Andrew West and recorder player Michala Petrie. In addition, quartets such as the Brodsky, the Fitzwilliam and the Lindsay, all of whom have since achieved international recognition, have also been engaged to perform for the Society.
On the occasion of our fortieth anniversary, we are delighted to welcome back the Coull, one of whose original members continues to play with the quartet.
Jazz, folk and world music also feature regularly in the Society’s programme of concerts.
In an attempt to bring a wider range of music to the younger generation, once every season the musicians who perform for us in the evening also demonstrate their musical magic to the pupils of St. Mary’s Primary School and to other schoolchildren in the locality.
We now look forward to another successful season of concerts which will be held in both St. Mary’s Primary School and St. Mary’s Parish Church, convenient venues for the people of Tickhill and the surrounding area of Doncaster, Sheffield and North Nottinghamshire. Further information can be found on our website www.tickhillmusicsociety.org and on our Facebook page.
