A CONCERT in memory of a much-loved Denbighshire couple will be held later this month.

Canolfan Cae Cymro, in Clawddnewydd, will play host to the event on Sunday, July 17 (2.30pm).

It is being staged in memory of Audrey and Eddie Naisby, with the concert including some of the music they enjoyed performing.

Performing at the event will be the Mold Town Concert Band and Winds Light and Variable.

Many will remember Audrey and Eddie as significant figures in the local musical community.

Audrey died in January 2020 and Eddie passed away last December.
From the 1970s, they gave individual music lessons to adults and children in the local community.

Countless students over the years responded warmly to their enthusiasm and willingness to go the extra mile, giving freely of their time to ensure that soloists and ensembles were always on hand, producing capable performances for whatever the occasion – concerts, competitions, examinations or musicals!

Audrey taught piano and Eddie taught flute, clarinet and saxophone.

They taught in Denbigh at Howell’s School and at Brigidine School, now St Brigid’s School.

Audrey and Eddie’s love of music led them to become involved in a variety of musical activities and ensembles in the area.

Eddie was a founder member of the Winds, Light and Variable quintet in which he played the flute for over 30 years.

Meanwhile, Audrey accompanied the quintet on piano. Eddie also performed in the Mold Town Concert Band where he played piccolo, flute, clarinet and saxophone. Both Audrey and Eddie contributed to musical events at Clocaenog and other local schools.

Admission to the July 17 concert is free and refreshments will be available.

All donations are gratefully received and they will go to the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and the British Red Cross.
