The Armonico Consort Academy - Nick Drew

Wonderful youth music.

Tuesday 2st May 2019, was the special day when we moved our Club venue to Kings Hill Nursery. The management were very welcoming, accommodating us in a dining room for 80 persons. The President, John Green hoped we would be satisfied, together with the other two Rotary Clubs, with the new surroundings.  On this auspicious occasion, we had the Ladies and Norman Paget present.  Nick Drew came to the Club and gave an interesting illustrated talk about The Armonico Consort. The A.C. Academy is an extensive and imaginative singing education programme which reaches 15,000 young people, catering for ages between 7 to 18 years and  offering life-changing experiences.  They give a first class performance of opportunities through fun and engaging singing projects. Past President Peter Thompson hosted the speaker and President John thanked him for an interesting talk together with many questions. Nick received a cheque from the Club which was gratefully acknowledged.  Photographs were taken by Rotarian Brian Sharp.
