Post subject:  Next CLPGS London Meeting : 16th October 19:00 Hrs

The October meeting of the CLPGS will be held on Tuesday 16th at 19:00 hrs in the Bertrand Russell Room of the Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1 4RL (close to Holborn tube station)

The presenter is Aleks Kolkowski who will be talking about and demonstrating the Stroh Violin. The Stroh violin (and cello)was a strange invention with violin strings but with a diaphragm and small horn. These were particularly used in early recordings as many existing photographs attest.

If anyone still has a copy of the BBC Documentary series "The Sound of Song" from a few years ago, the first programme features a section with Aleks playing the Stroh violin with the presenter, Neil Brand on the piano.

This should be a most interesting evening and one certainly out of the ordinary.

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Hope to see some of you there.

Regards

Tim W-W
