1.  The Aronowitz Ensemble

Just one of the many performances at Dart Music Festival, The Aronowitz Ensemble was formed out of the desire of seven brilliant young international artists to explore and perform chamber music together in the highly adaptable combination of string sextet and piano. Since its sell-out debut at St John's Smith Square, the ensemble has had a busy schedule of engagements across the UK and beyond, including performances at the Aldeburgh, Cambridge, Cheltenham, Chichester, City of London, Newbury and Spoleto Festivals; the Wigmore Hall, St George's Bristol and Queen's University Belfast; and, following Artists' Residencies at Snape Maltings, the inaugural Aldeburgh Residencies tour in 2006.

"The Aronowitz works as a true ensemble, listening, responding, moving as one and creating mellifluous, fascinating textures." Daily Telegraph
Magnus Johnston, Nadia Wijzenbeek - violin
Lily Francis, Tom Hankey - viola
Guy Johnston, Marie Macleod - cello
Tom Poster - piano

Friday May 7th at St. Saviour's Church, Dartmouth. 7.30 pm. Tickets available from The Dartmouth Visitor & Information Centre £12.00. Tele :- 01803 834224


2. Moonwalk ?

Four local ladies will be abandoning their shirts and aim to walk for 26.2 miles in their bras! However, in case you are wondering, it will not be on the streets of the South Hams, but as part of the Playtex Moonwalk taking place in London on the 15th May 2010. Hopefully the weather will be a little warmer, and they are of course hoping for a rain-free night!
“Walk the Walk” (Uniting against Breast Cancer) is the charity which has got the ladies walking. Gail Bond, daughter Laura, and friends Diane Hunt and Ann Irish, have started training hard in preparation for the big day – or should that be ‘night’? Thankfully as Gail is already a Moonwalk veteran, having completed the walk a few years ago, she is giving lots of helpful advice and keeping the rest of the team on the training and fundraising tracks! She says “I really enjoyed the last walk a few years ago, although it did have its problems at the time! Here’s hoping this one will be trouble-free!”

Needless to say the ladies want to make as much money as possible for this very worthwhile cause and they are currently seeking your support. If you would like to sponsor them you can do this very easily by pledging online by clicking here. If you see any of the walkers pounding the streets, give them a wave, as all encouragement is very gratefully received!

Why not come down for the weekend, or even a week?

3.   Creation  Tonight!

The Film Society reports: Our film for tonight 22nd April is Creation.  Impressively directed and well written, Creation is a thoughtful, extremely moving drama with terrific performances from Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly (real life husband and wife).

Based on the book Annie's Box (Randal Keynes' biography of his great-great grandfather), Creation is set in the mid-1800s and stars Paul Bettany as Charles Darwin.  Struggling with both his faith and his relationship with his wife Emma, following the tragic death of their adorable 10-year-old daughter Annie, Darwin's crisis of faith is compounded by his own locked-away research for On the Origin of Species. He agonises over whether he should publish his theories of evolution, knowing full well the impact they could have on both science and religion. Guest tickets from the Windjammer £3.50 7.30 - 7.55.  Our bar at The Guildhall opens at 7.30 - the film to be shown at 8pm approx.


4.   Small News

  • Jess from The Royal Castle reports: Rita is back! Rita has just spent three weeks at home in Indonesia and whilst she was there she picked up a few more ideas for her Rijstafel menu. So, on Thursday 29th April we will be having our monthly Rijstafel night. The menu is priced at £18.00 for four-courses and each course is made up of several dishes.

    Rijstafel (literally, rice table) is an array of many dishes in small portions that cover the whole table. Although it is a Dutch idea the origins are clearly Indonesian and it was known at one time as Makan Besar. Indonesian people traditionally take a meal from a central plate of steamed or fried rice with other dishes arranged around it - usually including fish or meat, a vegetable dish and a sweet and spicy sauce.

    To book you table please call 01803 833033. Our Rijstafel nights take place on the last Thursday of every month  (excluding Thursday 26th August)

  • Concert by Exeter Cathedral Choristers at St Saviour's Church on Saturday. Unfortunately the concert due to be held in St Saviour's Church this Saturday which we reported last week has had to be cancelled. Anyone who has already purchased their ticket can get a refund from Dartmouth Tourist Information Centre.
