THE VIKINGS ARE COMING
An Orchestra that I work with when in Norway, is coming to England to tour.
They've been here twice before, back in May 1996 and June 2002. They love Sheringham
and it's nice for us to repay their hospitality. We stay with them near Oslo when
we're over there. Jefferson's Mandolins are touring Norway from May 29th and the
Norwegians arrive here on the 26th of June. The Musikskole Orchestra are a youth orchestra
like mine and play beautiful stuff to a high standard. Their leader and good friend
of mine, Niklas Djurle, is the most amazing inspiration to them. He runs the
National Acadamy Sessions for the National Youth Orchestra.
Our two Orchestras are Playing at Salthouse Church on 28th June
in the evening. Please come and support them. They are also playing at St. Peter's
Church, Sheringham on Friday 30th June. Again it would be
lovely to see you there.
Could we through your paper, express our thanks to all the people who attended the BREAK
fund raiser on Saturday 25th March, for 'Will and Maff'. The boys gave a short talk
and showed a video of their trip from Plymouth to Banjul, after which we had 'local'
entertainment. Our grateful thanks to Mervyn of the Craft Bakery who donated all the
bread and rolls. Martin and the boys at Icarus Hines butchers for the lovely pork
and Threshers for the free lone of glasses. It was a fun evening and we raised in
excess of £800 to go towards the boys tally for BREAK.
