Finally . . .
I’ve received a letter from Andy Sippings, viola player and chairman of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Andy is one of Helen Pyburn’s brothers and was writing to express his and the rest of Helen’s family’s appreciation and gratitude for The Cobweb Orchestra’s performance at Helen’s “last big gig”.
Thank you to everyone who came and played.
Sue
