Club President: TONY STACE
In 2003 a number of enthusiasts met monthly in Oakham as a self-entertaining group. As this increased in popularity, it was decided that it should have an identity and the Organ and Keyboard Music Club was formed. Later ir was decided to change this to Rutland Organ and Keyboard and Music Club.
Members attending the group made a donation at each visit, and it was later decided that when sufficient funds were raised we should put on a professional concert. In order that this could happen earlier, a member of the group made a substantial donation. In spite of a lot of hard work and comprehensive advertising, the first concert in May did not receive the support that it deserved.
Although disappointed, but not disheartened, a new venue was found in Market Overton, an attractive old village a few miles from Oakham. The village hall, its location and facilities, has been ideal for us and it is our belief that this has contributed to our success.
More donations followed, giving us the financial confidence needed to arrange concerts for the rest of the year and to book artistes of the highest standard, a policy that we hope to be able to maintain in the future.
All visitors are welcome.
Concerts commence at 2.30 pm.
Admission: Guests £6.00 Members £5.00 12 month Membership £5.00
