Grantham Music Club will host a concert of music and poetry from the First World War, to be staged appropriately on Armistice Day.

The concert will be held in the hall at The King’s School in Grantham on Wednesday, November 11, at 7.30pm.

This will be a personal anthology of words and music by some of those affected by the Great War.

The concert will be performed by tenor Richard Rodd, pianist Clive Pollard, and readers Rosalind Williams and Gillian von Fragstein.

They envisage the performance as a snapshot of writers and composers at work before and after 1914. Richard is well-known throughout the Midlands as a tenor soloist and choral conductor and a few seasons ago performed at the music club and also appeared as a soloist for Grantham Choral Society. He is know for his fine, rich voice and his dramatic presentation.

The club says it is looking forward to the music and poetry concert which will be a new departure for it.

All of the club’s concerts are open to non-members. Tickets cost £12 or £10 concessions. Students enter for free. Tickets are available on the door or in advance from the Guildhall box office on 01476 406158.

Future concerts will be performed by a capella ensemble Cantabile on December 2 at the Guildhall Arts Centre, pianist James Kirby on January 17 at the King’s School, 
A Baroque Portrait on February 17 and finally saxophone ensemble Equinox on March 23.
