A request from The Park Centre Wives group in Burgess Hill to give a talk about the history of the orchestra set our chairman, Nicolas Chisholm, the challenge of finding out some fascinating details. The Society is fortunate to possess a complete set of programmes from 1925 onwards, and a comprehensive analysis of them by long-time Friend and supporter of the orchestra, Trevor Bolton. Nicolas spent some time researching this treasure trove and following up many leads that now appear on the internet. The result is an hour-long talk illustrated with a good number of photographs which he is keen to share.
Nicolas will give this talk to Friends of the Phil later in the year. Further details will appear in the June newsletter.
Nicolas would be very happy to present this talk to other groups in the local area, to spread the word about the orchestra, so if you are a member of a group that would like to book him, please contact him via the BPO Office or on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
