Introductory note by ACCS Chairman, Clive Kerridge

 

We were all deeply saddened by the death of our founder, guiding light and ACCS President, Audrey Newsome during the recent pandemic.

 

As in her impressive contributions to the development of professional counselling services in higher education, despite ‘retirement’ Audrey brought a similarly level of commitment to supporting and enhancing the cultural life of our local community.

 

In the case of Adbaston Community Concert Society, this combined her knowledge and enthusiasm for classical music with her prodigious ability to inspire others and to network across the academic and arts worlds. Audrey’s vision was to provide an opportunity for high-level regional musicians, and/or younger artists developing their professional careers, to offer concerts in the local community at affordable prices. This has continued to be the basis for our ACCS mission, delivered through four annual concerts (mostly classical, some jazz), with the kind support and collaboration of SDAC, Manchester Camerata, the Keyboard Charitable Trust and our local patrons.

 

Audrey is fondly remembered and greatly missed by many of us. The following short obituaries are by Committee members and associates, all of whom hope to continue with that mission that Audrey was so instrumental in defining.

 

We have resumed our Adbaston concert series and have a full 2022 programme running from April to November, including an Audrey Newsome Memorial Concert as part of Stafford Music Festival on Sunday 8th May 2022, at which we hope you will be able to join us.
