Display: The President invited Miss [CENSORED: forename][CENSORED: surname] to present her display on Music.

The latter part of the first round was devoted to Mozart and included some fine covers brought back, by Miss [CENSORED: surname], from a ‘pilgrimage’ to Salzburg.

The main part of the second round, opened with, and was devoted to Beethoven – the last of the great Classic composers and the first great Romantic. The round finished off with a selection of the other Masters and a section on Nationalism within the Romantic Movement.

Vote of Thanks: [CENSORED: forename][CENSORED: surname] was delighted to be giving the vote of thanks as she and [CENSORED: forename] had collected Music together over many years and had enjoyed visits to Mrs [CENSORED: forename][CENSORED: surname] when she had been alive.
