Members' Playing Day

Strathfield Uniting Church, Carrington Ave, Strathfield (off the Boulevarde)
(Less than ten minutes' walk from Strathfield Station)

Easter Monday (and Anzac Day) 25th April 2011 starting at 1.00 pm - Recital at 2.30 pm. Free

Instead of the usual ramble, the committee has arranged something between a ramble and a recital (perhaps an informal recital?). Members will be playing for their friends (and maybe a few from the church). All are welcome to come and listen, even if you don't wish to play.

Members are asked to bring and play a favourite piece. We hope to compile an interesting programme from your offerings. You may also hear some of your committee play. There is no charge for the event.

Please phone Hugh Knight on 9874 4225 by Wednesday 20th April if you wish to take part, advising what you intend to play and the timing. We would like to hear some quieter short pieces as well as loud toccatas! From 1pm there will be a short time for each to check out registration on the organ, and assistance will be available.

The 'recital' will begin at 2.30 pm and conclude by 4 pm, with an interval for tea/coffee.
