May I thank everybody for their generosity on the occasion of my 60th birthday. I was very touched by all the cards, pictures and presents that were given to me last Sunday. Last week I looked over the Proms programme and have chosen a few to attend; Debussy, Berlioz and Verdi and will now wait until ticket sales begin on Saturday 12th May. Your present will make for some enjoyable summer evenings.
