Music society appeals for support

The Palace Theatre Music Society, Mansfield, is urging people to support its concert series to ensure the society can continue.

It has organised and promoted classical music concerts in the Mansfield area, using both local and national musicians, for nearly 20 years.

Instrumentalists and vocalists have brought a wide range of music and concert styles.

A spokesman said: “We are all aware that finances nationally continue to be restricted and the society, like many other organisations, is similarly affected.

“There is a strong likelihood that the society may have to be dissolved in the near future — something which would be very much regretted.

“In order that the Society can continue to function and bring classical music to the locality, we would urge all music lovers to support the present concert series and more.”

The next performance at the Crescent Centre, Mansfield, is on November 18th, at 7.30pm, when Galliarda will present an evening of instrumental and vocal Mediterranean music.

Tickets cost £13 if bought in advance and £14 on the day of the concert.

Society members pay £10.40 in advance and £11. 20 on the day.

Tickets are available from the Palace Theatre box office, call 01623 633133, or on the door on the day of the concert.

On 27th January there will be a recital by internationally-acclaimed pianist Lauretta Bloomer, who lives locally. Ticket prices and availability are the same as for the November concert.
