THE 47th annual Bromsgrove musical club chamber concert was held at the Institute in Bromsgrove. Despite appalling weather, there was a very large, enthusiastic audience of members present which the Messenger said proved the splendid life and vigour of the club.

The work of composers, including Elgar, Mascagni and Bach, was performed to an appreciative audience.
