A memorial concert to celebrate the life of the former chairman of the Maidenhead Music Society will be held on Saturday, June 18.
The concert will pay tribute to Winifred Law, who died at the age of 90 in October.
The much cherished friend and avid music lover taught music for 35 years at Maidenhead High School, now known as Newlands Girls’ School.
Performers will include ex-Desborough boys, current Madrigal Choir girls, The Kebel Road Quartet, the East Berks Recorder Consort, friends of Maidenhead Operatic Society and the Noteworthy Quartet.
The concert is being organised by former teachers and students including Barbara Clarkson, Mary Stock, Lou Tait and Sarah Seddon.
Sarah said: “After the funeral we thought it would be nice to have a memorial concert with singing so everyone could say goodbye to Win.
“Music was such a big part in her life.
“We’ve started organising it in January and we’ve had lots of interest so far, and tickets sales are going well.”
Win also supported many organisations in Maidenhead including The Courthouse Ensemble, the Blind Club, Maidenhead Painting Club and Maidenhead Operatic Society.
She was also president of the Maidenhead Women’s Group for European Friendship and as member of the Twinning Committee. Win was always ready to give hospitality and friendship to overseas guests.
Profits from the concert will be split between the National Deaf Children’s Society and Maidenhead Music Society and there will also be collections for charities.
The concert will take place at St Luke’s Church, Norfolk Road at 7.30pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to buy tickets which cost £10.
