March 31st 2019 saw a smaller than desired audience enjoy the mastery of Kevin Morgan at the Gosport Compton. This may have been because it was Mothering Sunday or that Portsmouth FC was playing in the Cup Final at Wembley. However, the 44 discerning folk that attended enjoyed Kevin's programme, and this included our treasurer, Graham Hornsey, who reports that Kevin was on excellent form, and did not repeat any of his programme from the last time he saw him.  The organ also sounded very well. Our thanks to the Gosport and District Organ Club for welcoming us and we will be back at Thorngate Halls Ballroom on Sunday July 7th with Cameron Lloyd in concert at 2:00pm.

 

Sunday February 17th 2019 saw our annual visit to Old Windsor as guests of the Windsor and District Organ Club. We have been enjoying our visits since 1996 and look forward to many more. David Ivory was at the Compton and gave his usual high standard of music in a well thought out programme of familiar and less so music. David's second half was devoted to the animal kingdom, and seemed to go down well with the 100+ in the audience. Another well-attended and enjoyable afternoon. Thanks to all the friendly folk at Old Windsor and to everyone who came and supported us. We return on May 19th at 2:30pm.
