The branch pastoral conductor in April this year was Sandra Foxall who is always an invigorating and welcome visitor to Glasgow. We played a selection of 16th century music including Gabrieli, always a favourite, and a Battaglia by Banchieri which on sight reading was more of a skirmish but ended up as a vigorous battle after Sandra had taken it apart. We finished with some exciting jazz.
A great deal of chat over food and catching up with long time friends occupied the breaks. It was very pleasing to welcome visitors from far and wide who helped make it a happy session. Our thanks to Sandra who injected her enthusiasm and humour to make it a memorable day.
