The Gilbert & Sullivan Society, Manchester, is a friendly group of people interested in the works of Gilbert & Sullivan. We are an appreciation Society and don't perform. Instead, we invite speakers and singers to attend our meetings and entertain, inform and educate us on the subject of Gilbert & Sullivan, or anything connected with them. Previous guest speakers and recitalists have included professional and amateur singers, choirs, orchestral conductors, music professors - anyone with an interest in or knowledge of the world of G&S.
We meet once a month from October to May in the Unitarian Chapel, Cross Street, Manchester, M2 1NL, a bright, modern building in the centre of the city. We were established in 1932 and have met every year since then. Entry to nearly all of our meetings is free; a charge is only made when we have a professional performer visit as they require a fee. All visitors are very welcome to attend any meeting. Please see our website at manchestergands.org.uk for more information about the Society and past meetings.
Our November meeting takes place on Tuesday 5th at 19:15, when ex-D'Oyly Carte Opera Company soprano Sandra Dugdale will entertain and enlighten us with a talk on producing G&S. Sandra is currently a Tutor in Vocal Studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and will be accompanied by two of her students who will sing musical examples.
