  1. Dear Karen,

    It is my understanding that you were a member of St Aidan’s College when you studied at Durham University. If this is incorrect then please disregard this message and my apologies for the intrusion.

    I am emailing on behalf of St Aidan’s College Alumni Association. I don’t how much contact you have had with the College since you left, or whether you receive any of the regular email newsletters that the University send out to its alumni. 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the St Aidan’s College, and to commemorate the occasion, the Alumni Association and the College are holding a celebratory reunion weekend this summer. The weekend is the 7th to the 9th July.

    Firstly I would like to invite you to come along to the weekend and join in the celebrations. It will offer a great opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Durham, see Sir Basil Spence’s magnificent College buildings and also hopefully catch up with some old friends.

    Secondly, as part of the weekend, we are looking to organise a short programme of talks, panel discussions and recitals for the weekend. We wondered if you would potentially be interested in taking part in one of these. It would be fascinating to hear about your career in music and academia since you left St Aidan’s.

    The latest information about the reunion can be found on our website at:

    This also contains the link to the online bookings.

    If you have any further questions about the reunion, or about St Aidan’s Alumni Association in general then please do not hesitate to email me here.

    I very much hope you can come up to Durham to help the College celebrate its 70th Anniversary in style.

    Kind Regards

    Ben Fisher
    Reunions Officer
    Aidan’s Alumni Association


  2. It is a pity that You have close comments from Your accordion post. I live in Finland where accordion has been popular and its played yet today. In Finland we have tango carnivals and very beautiful accordeon tangos. More beautiful are our waltzes played by accordion. In Finland we have our national instrument called Kantele. Its sounds are very beautiful. I have a post in which I have presented and a short video.

    Happy Sunday!
