Alison Kay: inspirational local talent

Alison Kay has lived in Broadstone for over 20 years. She left her Swansea home to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and from there she went straight on to become sub principal viola player with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. In 1997 she left this full time position to spend more time with her family. She freelanced mainly as a viola player and continued teaching the violin, viola and music theory at Parkstone Grammar School and Talbot Heath School. She also tutored young chamber groups at home and entered them into the Bournemouth Music Festival.      See full story...

Making Music: the band members' stories

The Worship Band makes a big contribution to worship at Broadstone Methodist Church. They give a strong and rhythmic lead to the singing at most of the regular family services, yet the seven members of the band are of a wide range of ages and of musical skills. Here are extracts from some of their stories.      See full story...

My life in choirs

Singing has always been a part of my life. All the La Rivieres sang in choirs, and still do. As a boy I joined the choir at Kenton Methodist Church when I was seventeen. I also belonged to the Kenton Male Voice Choir. Conducting started with training the children for Sunday School Anniversary. A very big event at Kenton. I also trained and conducted at three Scout Gang Shows. That was great fun.      See full story...
