JOYCE LANG 1922 – 2019

Seven members represented the Society at the Celebration of Joyce’s long life at ‘her’ Church at Windrush. It was interesting that so many of her former students were also present and spoke affectionately of being taught music by her at school in Greenwich. Many fond stories were told of the high standards she demanded and what happened when they were not achieved! We were indeed privileged that she was our Conductor from 1982 to 1990.
