Ian Hare played the organ pieces and accompanied the soloist dramatic soprano Dorothy King, both giving the audience the pleasure of faultless performance. There was about forty in the audience but sadly only five CSO members. This was a most enjoyable concert organised by Ian, and ended with refreshments on a banqueting scale.
