Afetrnoon Success For HAverhill?Afternoon Success For Haverhill?

Saturday 9th May

Haverhill Organ and Keyboard Club are having a "trial run" concert on Friday 8th May 2009.  To try and increase numbers they are putting on an afternoon concert, starting at 2.00pm, at the Haverhill Arts Centre. 

Numbers have decreased slightly over the years and one factor has been members and visitors not wanting to travel at night.  If the support for afternoon concerts is good then there may be more in the future.
 
Playing for this special concert will be Matthew Bason.  Doors open  at 1.30pm and Matthew will also feature slots on grand piano and accordion.
