Sad news for clients of Arts in Residence 
and Friends of Terry Barfoot.



Terry's condition unfortunately did not improve and he was hospitalised with an untreatable cancer, receiving morphine. 
He died at 5.30am on Wednesday 12th August 2020. His funeral was on Wednesday 26th August.  A message from his
widow Jan may be viewed at www.artsinresidence.co.uk  A link on that page provides access to details of the last two
events planned. The first has been cancelled but the second (fully booked) will go ahead, being the last
Arts in Residence event ever to take place.
 

 

Members will also be saddened to know that Marjorie Wilkins has died. Marjorie was a stalwart committee member for many years and arranged visits for Club members to concerts, recitals, operas, ballets and all manner of musical events. She was active right up to the point when the Covid-19 virus resulted in our activities being curtailed but her health took a turn for the worse early in 2020, but this was not connected with the virus. She will be missed for her quiet but effective long-standing contributions to the Club in general as well as her devoted work in arranging sociable musical experiences for many members.

When it is safe we will continue to arrange visits to musical and theatrical events, mainly in London. We will also include in the programme other events of a cultural, educational and social nature so that members are offered a wide range of stimulating opportunities to meet with like-minded friends.

Late last year we were delighted to announce an operatic visit to Riga and 18 Music Club of London members were anticipating joining the tour in June of this year. The tour did not go ahead but it is hoped that we can restore the plan in 2021. Details will be announced as soon as restrictions are lifted and bookings can be made.

The Music Club of London publishes a quarterly magazine Harmony on this website. Harmony issue 268 can be found here but as it was published on March 1st it includes details of the now cancelled events we expected to hold this Summer.  It features reviews of recent events together with articles on a variety of musical subjects. Until the restrictions on musical events is lifted publication of further editions of Harmony is paused.

Our Annual General Meeting was planned for Thursday April 30th at the Lancaster Hall Hotel, London W2. The meeting was postponed. A new date will be set for the AGM as soon as the present constraints on social gatherings are relaxed.

Despite the current restrictions on social events we still welcome all who wish to join our friendly organization but subscriptions will not be due until April 2021. An Application Form for membership is on this website. 0ur Membership Secretary is Margaret Murphy margaretmurphy567@gmail.com,  You may also contact our Secretary Ian Slater, by email to iw.slater@ntlworld.com  or by telephone on 0208  529 3786 for more information.

The committee of The Music Club of London sends good wishes to all members and to all visitors to this website. Keep safe, keep well, keep enjoying music at home until we can all meet again.
