FROM DUET TO DECET
Roger Higson, Chairman of Ripon Concerts has told us of this worthwhile project - please support! (it would make a great Christmas present for someone!)
"All of us who work with musicians are very aware of their dire plight during the current almost complete shut down of the music industry.
In the absence of concerts, we have therefore written a short, illustrated, and lighthearted book entitled: “FROM DUET TO DECET A Novice’s Guide to Chamber Music”, to raise money for them in this time of crisis and at the same time introduce people to chamber music.
The book is full of information about musical instruments, types of ensembles, chamber music compositions, how to access concerts, what to expect at a concert and much more.
All production costs have been covered, so that ALL the money raised from sales of the book will be given to the charity HELP MUSICIANS UK. It costs only £12 (inc p&p) and can be ordered through our website www.riponconcerts.co.uk or by using the attached order form.
We are hoping that everyone who is concerned about the future of music, will wish to help those who have enriched and enhanced our lives so much, by generously supporting this fund raising venture."
