Oxford Concert for Peace - Saturday 21st September
Message from District 1090 to all club members:
I am pleased to promote the Oxford Concert for Peace that is being held at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford on Saturday 21st September.
This is being organised by Rotarians in Abingdon and is promoting the activities of the Rotary Foundation.
Performing without a conductor, twenty of the world’s leading string players from 15 different countries will come together to promote peace. This will be the first of only 3 performances world-wide featuring the orchestra in 2019.
On UN World Peace Day, Rotarians in Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley in collaboration with The World Orchestra for Peace are proud to present The Oxford Concert for Peace.
Join us for an evening of classical music from a global orchestra.
All the first violinists are concert masters in their own right and as such each piece will be lead by a different 1st violinist, so there will be no conductor which is very rare.
•Eine Kleine Nachtmusik K525 W.A. Mozart
•Holberg Suite Opus 40 Edvard Grieg
•Serenade for String Orchestra Opus 20 Edward Elgar
•Serenade for String Orchestra Opus 48 Tchaikovsky
•plus a surprise piece!
Charles Kaye (co-founder) will speak briefly about the orchestra along with one of the musicians as well as a couple of Rotary Peace Fellows about their work.
Tickets From £25
Book through the Sheldonian website https://www.sheldonian.ox.ac.uk/events

There are a limited number of special packages to enjoy a pre-concert reception to meet some of the musicians and rotary peace fellows as well as having a reserved chair seat.

District Conference 2020 Information
To all Rotarians in District 1090
Welcome to the new Rotary Year. On behalf of Frank Quinn, our new District Governor, and the members of the March 2020 District Conference Team, we are pleased to announce that the conference website is up and running and that registration is open. You will find lots of useful information at www.rotary1090conference.org and we will add to this over the next few months.
The first conference newsletter is also attached, since we know that some of you prefer to see printed information at your club meetings. Future emails regarding the conference will be sent to club secretaries and club conference coordinators. Please therefore ensure that your club has a nominated coordinator and that you have passed this information to Sue Pomeroy, as explained in the newsletter.
We look forward to sharing more information about the conference as the months progress, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
