ABOUT THIS NEWSLETTER … Almost 120 readers now!
This free newsletter is a small-scale production to keep you in touch with what’s happening in hago – we always include links into our main website where you can read more, see photos and explore still further, so do click when you see a link…
Welcome to the many people who have subscribed since last issue. You’re all very welcome :-)

Just a short news to wish you a belated Happy Easter and to tell you how delighted we are to see some sunshine at last!

A lot has been happening in “the close season” …

A fair few of us went down to the Portsmouth Music Festival to support the guitar section. Some of the talent there was really very good – where else can you hear quite so much guitar music for so little money? Well, at a hago concert of course – you’ll hear over a dozen times as much guitar music as in a solo concert!
And it was a pleasure to see the hago cup presented again.

We said goodbye to Tracy (our bass player who’s been here since 2001) and Kathryn (one of our alto players).
Kathryn is leaving to take up residence in New Zealand, so getting to rehearsals is not looking likely…
We presented each of them with a “This is Your Life” book – there are photos in our 2010 gallery.

But fate has a curious way of dealing a strange hand, and as soon as we had dates for their departure, we received two emails from people interested in joining!
And that’s the story of how we’ve welcomed Alan and Jana – two players who will lift our overall playing standard still higher.

And, in the style of all good businesses, we had a structured handover of control from Kathryn & Tracy to Alan & Jana in the form of a concert in which we had all four players playing, and a total of 16 guitars. That was our concert at the Turner Sims Concert Hall as guests of the Southampton Flute Orchestra (Flautissimo), who looked at our four sizes of guitar and then turned up with FIVE sizes of flute.
It was a fantastic concert and we’ve been asked to host a “revenge match” here in Portsmouth next year, something that we’re delighted to do, and we hope you’ll come to.

Also in our 2010 gallery there are photos of another pair of “long service awards” – our Musical Director’s personal Thank You to those who clock up 100 rehearsals!

Just a week away now is our Emsworth concert, on April 17th. Emsworth is home to the Solar Boat, which features in our latest YouTube short.
And after that, a chance to play in the Olivier Theatre at Bedales School, near Petersfield, on May 22nd – a fantastic venue.

There are two concerts in June as well – more details next newsletter…

You’ll find details of all of these on our concerts page – how to buy tickets, how to find the venue….

We introduced our latest new piece in our recent concert – a Beatles number played in a rather delicate setting – the audience loved it. That’s going to be a regular for a little while now!

And over the Easter break we’ve been looking at our repertoire – we have some new items appearing soon.

You can find us on Facebook too.
If you’re not a member, you can read all our latest news. Check out the Boxes and Wall tabs.
