Our Vice Chairman writes:

Dear Member,
Below is the link to the 3rd issue of Corona Chronicle, with thanks to all who have contributed so far. I have a small bank of pieces awaiting publication, but would welcome additional material to keep us going to the end of the season. Two of our members have already shared their Desert Island Discs in the current issue. If you’d like to contribute your selection, there’s a link to a template (below).

One of the joys of belonging to any group is discovering the wealth of talent, skill, experience and achievement of other members and especially during this time of restricted social contact, many people are discovering the value of story-telling as a means of staying connected. We’d love to build a profile of our Society based on your stories, however you might choose to tell them. If you’re stuck for ideas, here is a framework you could use.

  • Where born/raised
  • Where you live now
  • Education
  • Job(s)
  • Family, especially if any have musical interests or noteworthy musical achievements
  • How did your own interest in music start?
  • How long have you been a member of WPS?
  • What do you like best about WPS?
  • Memorable moments with WPS
  • Interest/involvement in music beyond WPS?
  • Interests/activities other than music?

Just as a guide, about 300 words will do very nicely – and if you have a photograph you’d like to include, that would be even better!

Email your returns to judy@watfordphilharmonic.co.uk or post to 3 Church End, Sandridge, St Albans AL4 9DL

Stay well and stay in touch


Judy Newton-Davies, Vice Chairman WPS
