Jonathon PagetThe Society sponsored a concert by Jonathon Paget in July whilst he was here on vacation from his higher music studies in the USA.
The big crowd he drew showed their appreciation of his fine playing and deep commitment to the music.
Local performers gave two concerts.

President of the Society in September showed his depth of understanding and interpretation of the beatiful music of Manuel Ponce.
The final 1998 concert was by the talented local partners Ruth and Richard Lenz. Their concert demonstrated excellent co-ordination and musicianship enabled them to present a wide range of seletions at the highest level.
