Annual General Meeting

(1) I remember that Harold Eccles included Saint-Saëns' 3rd symphony, but not the rest of his programme

(2) Rod Paton had studied in Czechoslovakia under Jan Kapr and the programme included some of Kapr's music and possibly also some by Alois Haba. The final item was a lengthy orchestral tone poem called "The Song of the South". Does anyone know the composer?

(3) I missed this programme but I believe Mrs.Whittaker's favourite opera was "La Wally" by Catalani.
