• Connor’s amazing fundraising concert •


The Friends are delighted to announce that the donations received from Connor Lyster’s fundraising concert on 9th September 2017 is a whopping ¬£600!

Thank you so much to everyone who donated so generously, to all the musicians who gave up their free time to rehearse and perform, Rory and Lisa Lyster plus their families for running refreshments throughout the event and for supporting Connor, plus thank you to everyone else who helped make the concert such a success.

Connor conducted¬†Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture and the Brahms Symphony no 4 from memory, with no score in sight which is incredible.

Connor’s name is one to watch out for in years to come and when he’s conducting a world class orchestra, you can all say, “We were at his debut concert in September 2017!”
