Dear Music Lovers

Whereas I am cautiously pleased that TRMS is back with its concerts following a dreadful year and a half dealing with the COVID pandemic the like of which none of us have ever experienced or imagined. Looks like we are through the worst and can be vigilantly optimistic and bring in some safe steps to get back to some sort normality to our lives which, I believe, will not be complete without music.

I am delighted that with the initiative and help from our Programmes Director - Dr Steven Halls, we have put together a plan of concerts over the next six months which barring any new adverse developments, we hope to bring to you.

Our first concert is a lunchtime one by Jayne Walker, the English National Opera Violinist and Steven Halls on Cello with repertoire including Bach, Heyden, Mozart, Elgar and a composition by Steven himself. None of the pieces have been played at TRMS before. All available places were taken up and the audience thouroughly enjoyed the concert.

Due to COVID Restrictions and Safe Distancing rules, TRMS had decided that the first concert to have limited capacity of 35 in the audience and as a gesture of goodwill and welcome, we made it FREE on first come first served basis.

The website is now up to date with the full list of upcoming concerts and I hope I can count on your ongoing support.

Many thanks and regards


Chairman, TRMS
