This year’s annual fund raising concert for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Benevolent Fund will take place at Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, on Sunday, 26th May, at 3.00pm.
Dynamic Welsh conductor Owain Arwel Hughes will unite the combined forces of orchestra and Bournemouth Symphony Chorus in a programme that includes the rarely performed choral version of Brahms’s Academic Festival Overture and the exhilarating violin concerto by Sibelius, played by former winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition Jennifer Pike. A double helping of Tchaikovsky: the concert suite from his romantic ballet score Swan Lake followed by the ever-popular 1812 Overture, will bring the afternoon to a rousing conclusion.
Janice Thorgilson, BSO violinist and organiser of the event, is particularly delighted that this year’s concert features Pike, one of the most gifted of the younger generation of British artists. She said; “Jennifer is an inspirational violinist with a truly engaging musicality. This promises to be a spectacular performance of Sibelius’s technically demanding concerto.
Each year, the Benevolent Fund responds to requests for financial support from musicians affected by illness or injury, enabling a quicker return to work than might otherwise be the case. Established by BSO chief executive, the late Ken Matchett, in 1958, the Fund is financed primarily by the annual concert where every performer donates their services, a tradition which has continued uninterrupted for more than half a century.
Members of the orchestra, past and present, are grateful to all the guest artists, including every principal conductor from Rufolf Schwarz to Marin Alsop, who have generously participated over the years.

An Unquiet Spirit is a collection of diaries and letters by the critically acclaimed artist Hilary Gialerakis, edited by her daughter Antonia. Hilary lived a colourful and tempestuous life until her death in 2003. This is a courageous story documenting the life of an extraordinary woman and artist.
Hilary Carter (who later became Hilary Gialerakis) was from the Carter family of Poole Pottery. As Hilary was a descendant from the Poole Pottery family and had a great deal of family in Poole, this title may be of interest to local residents.
AN UNQUIET SPIRIT
Hilary Gialerakis lived a colourful, tempestuous life until her death at the age of seventy-nine in 2003. After a lifetime of illnesses, mystery afflictions and treatment by doctors, psychiatrists and various counsellors from a variety of different disciplines, finally, in the closing pages of her diary, she diagnosed herself as nothing more than an ‘unquiet spirit’.
In writing her diaries – started in 1924 and put aside in 1973 – Hilary was seeking to find the answer to her perpetual question: ‘What is wrong with me?’
Despite the turbulence of the years, Hilary – who also exhibited under the name of Hilary Lorenzen in South Africa – painted a great many paintings, many of which met with critical acclaim.
When, shortly before her death, Hilary posted the writings to her daughter Antonia – who has since edited and provided a Foreword to this book – she did so in the hope that this might bring them closer together. In sharing this often painful testament with a wider audience, An Unquiet Spirit is a story of fortitude, daring, courage – even humour – as well as sure proof that the creative life is often the only respite in the most despairing of situations.

The award winning Green House is a beautiful eco-friendly boutique hotel in the heart of Bournemouth that lives, eat and breathes sustainability. In 2011 it was listed in the Guardian’s Green Travel List 2011 and it has just received a gold accreditation from the Green Business Tourism Scheme.
Extensive thought and painstaking research has gone into every aspect to ensure that this designer hotel minimises its impact on the environment at every turn. Interior highlights include 100% UK wool fabrics, woven on the isle of Bute, British designed and made wallpaper, FSC certified, printed with vegetable ink, solid hard wood furniture, either recycled or hand crafted in the UK from fallen trees damaged through storms or disease.
Solar thermal energy, complemented by electricity generated on site, ensure that public resource is only used where absolutely necessary. All of this without compromise to guest satisfaction and pleasure, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Now it has just increased its green credentials by the activation of their two Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations, donated by Zero Carbon World
Olivia O’Sullivan General Manager for the hotel said “As the greenest hotel in the Uk we are always looking for ways in which to add to our green credentials. As we already generate our own electricity onsite, what better way than with EV charging points, so our guest’s can charge their Electric cars”
Zero Carbon World donates Charging Stations to the hotel and leisure industry to support the development of a national charging infrastructure and encourage the adoption of electric vehicles.
‘There are no restrictions to use Zero:Net,’ said Kevin Sharpe Founder of Zero Carbon World and Chair of the Trustees.’You don’t have to be a member, subscribe, pay in advance or use a smart card to access electricity. Wherever EV drivers are, they can recharge while eating, sleeping, working or simply relaxing. We are extremely proud to be creating the UK’s only Open Charging Station Network”.
Westover Nissan was invited by the hotel to be the first to connect a Nissan Leaf on the new charging point. Sallyann Tanner Electric Vehicle Relationship Manager for Westover Nissan said
“This charging point will allow guests to stay in a gorgeous eco friendly green hotel and charge their eco friendly electric car whilst staying in one of 32 superb guest rooms, this is ecotourism at its very best”
