Corin Long’s sister Vanessa has booked Longslade Community College in Birstall, Leicester for a memorial concert for the late Royal Philharmonic principal bassist, who tragically died in an accident earlier this year.
The concert will be from 7.30 to 9.30ish with a bar open til midnight. All are most welcome to attend and donations given at the concert will go into the Corin Long memorial Fund in aid of financially struggling music students. If anyone cannot attend but wishes to make a donation, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone wanting tickets, please also e-mail and they will be reserved at the door. We are hoping to get enough sponsors to make tickets free, otherwise they will be no more than £5.
I’ll be sure to promote this event as the date approaches, but I want to be sure and get the word out now so that people can make arrangements to be at this event.
