To all members of The Great BRitain-Russia Society
Dear Fellow member
A week from tonight on Thursday May 21st we have a very special event – a
Gala Concert with professional concert pianists Olga Balakleets and Julian
The music they will play is totally different from last year.
This is a special event for three reasons.
(1) Outstanding pianists of international repute – and do not forget that
as Director of Pushkin House Julian Gallant has been an exceptionally good
and helpful friend to our Society!
(2) This will be one of the few occasions to be graced with the presence
of our Patron His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent. You amy well have
the chance to be introduced to him.
(3) The Party afterwards will feature Russian delicacies specially
prepared for us by Carolyn Cripps, who will need to be advised of the
numbers attending at least two days in advance of next Thursday.
How disgraceful therefore that to date only 26 members have reserved
places! We need to fill the hall with 67 people.
So please book up NOW either by paying with your credit card on line via
our web site www.http://gbrussia.org by clicking onto 'lectures' and paying
against this event, or post your cheques NOW to The Great Britain-Russia
Society to Ute Chatterjee, 43 Kenilworth Court, Lower Richmond Road,
London SW15 1EN ('phone 0788 4464 461).
I do not intend to email members again about forthcoming events until at
least July, but I really do think that Julian and Olga (who are giving
their services free of charge), HRH Prince Michael and Carolyn Cripps
deserve a better and enthusiastic response from all of you.
Come on, do your bit for the Society! Tickets are £12.50 for this event,
and dress is semi-formal (jacket and tie for men, and no trainers
Looking to you and thanking you in anticipation of your positive AND
