MELLOR ARCHAEOLOGICAL TRUST - SAMUEL OLDKNOW CONCERT
      
Mellor Parish Centre
Sunday November 16 2014 – 7-30 pm


From Samuel Oldknow and the Arkwrights by George Unwin:

On December I5th, 1786, Samuel Salte, the London merchant who sold Oldknow’s muslins, wrote “I have sent you the Piano Forte, packed up very Carefully by Pickford's wagon - I hope you will find sweet music in it that will wrap your Soul as Milton says in Elizium. Get the Sweet Nymphs about you, they will waken it and charm your Ears and mind with sounds of sweetest Melody."

Unwin notes that Sebastien Erard, the inventor of the modern piano, made his first English piano in 1780. He then adds “It is likely enough, therefore, that the instrument installed at Heaton [Stockport] in 1786 was one of the first to be heard in the North of England.” Unwin also adds that 1786 was when “the world was enriched by the immortal music of Figaro”.

The concert will be by two talented young musicians:

Rosa Hartley, violin, from Royal College of Music in London

Hayley Parkes, piano, from Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester

The music will include works by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.which might have been heard when Samuel Oldknow entertained his friends in Stockport and Mellor.

Tickets £10. Concessions: £9 for advance booking; £8 or £7 advance booking for under-16s. Tickets will also be available at the Parish Centre and on the door. Numbers are limited so booking is recommended.

To book and pay for your place download the attached pdf form and follow the instructions.

 I think the scheme would help us to feel safe and build a better connected neighbourhood.

I plan to speak with my neighbours to see if they would be interested. I wondered if anyone has any advice on setting up a scheme?

Trip Advisors "Independent Reviews." Dave's right with his ....'pinch of salt."

Any newspaper that uses trip advisor as some kind of barometer can't have much discernment. It is a list that I will be ignoring.
