Spokeswoman Michela Cocolin said: “Following the passing of our president and dear friend Chris Coote (last year), the club has now moved to the Regis School of Music at 46 Sudley Road. It will remain an independent club, offering approximately three concerts per quarter, including professional concerts and member performances.

“Non-members are always welcome to attend any of the events and tickets will be available at the door. We have two new co-chairs, Alison Woodward and William Allenby.

Alison said, “We are delighted to bring classical music back to life in the new home of the Bognor Regis Music Club.

“We would be delighted to welcome a new audience to join our existing burgeoning workforce to hear first-class musicians perform live at Bognor Regis.

“Our first concert will feature exceptional euphonium soloist Martin Smith accompanied on piano by the excellent Angela Zanders.”

Martin Smith said: “It is a pleasure to play live at the Bognor Regis Music Club.

“We have a program for everyone to enjoy, including works by Stamford, Capuzzi, Gershwin, Rossini and Chopin as well as original lyrical works for the euphonium by great contemporary composers such as Rodney Newton and Philip Sparke. In addition, we present the music of one of the main composers, Cecilia McDowall. We can’t wait to share our music with you.

Tickets are available locally at £ 11 for non-members, £ 9 for members and £ 5 for students and children.
