On Thursday 11 November we welcomed the famous Tákacs Quartet, a long established ensemble showered with accolades and awards, with a proud recording history.
With Barbara Thomas’s permission, the concert was dedicated to the memory of Peter, her late husband, and our former Club Secretary. There was a tribute to him in the programme.
As you may know, Peter suffered with Motor Neurone disease, dying just eight months after he had retired as Secretary. We thought it would be a fitting gesture to donate the money raised from programme sales for this concert to the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN), based at Sheffield University, who undertake research into the disease.
On the night we raised £855 in donations, which are being forwarded to SITRaN.
