William Griffiths is a solo tenor and a professional music teacher, who has worked with Susie Allan recently tp develop this new programme. He has trained as a singer since childhood, including with teachers in Paris and London. As a linguist, he loves to sing the great European repertoire of beautiful songs. He has chosen the songs for this programme to reflect both this love and the simple setting of the Church at Wolfhamcote.
Susie Allan is Professor of Accompaniment at the Royal College of Music and is a prize-winning musician , best known for her work as a vocal accompanist. She performs regularly on Radio 3, partnering well-established singers, as well as in concerts at the Wigmore Hall, the Royal Opera House and on tour. She released an acclaimed disc with the baritone Roderick Williams and gave a highly successful recital LAST year at the Gloucester Three Choirs Festival.
Wolfhamcote Church will have the benefit of soloist and accompanist for an hour of great music in this magical setting.
The tickets and posters have arrived from the printers and so distribution and collecting money has begun. Starting to make the drinks for the picnic – at the moment mint and citrus cordial. Any volunteers for cake and sandwich making nearer the day please.

We have had our first meeting this week and we are planning lots more.
Arts on Our Doorstep have funded a new project for us. Wolfhamcote church belongs to the Churches Conservation trust as an ancient monument but it also belongs to us all as a community centre. This project is to make the church a happy find

As you may know in 2010 we made a video and here is the blog of the day of the shoot:
