Clem Ryan, President, Rathmines & Rathgar Musical Society.

A Song to Sing O! T h e music of Gilbert and Sullivan has long had a very firm place in the hearts of the m e m b e rs of the Rath min es and Rath g ar Musical Society. In fact o ne of the first public pe rform ances by the R & R was a pro ductio n of The M ika do in the old Q u e e n 's T h eat re in D e c e m b e r , 1913. O v e r the years we can safely say that o u r m e m be rs and public have derived a lot of enjo yment from o u r perform anc es of A r t h u r Sullivanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stirring music and W S Gilb ert's witty lyrics. Even today in the 1990s Gilbert & Sullivan is still as melodious and as topical as ever. T he ma ny and varied op e re tt a s are too n um ero us to mention but in A S o n g to Sing O ! ou r intention is to give you a representative selection from the repertoire. Fashions com e and go and W S Gilbert and A r t h u r Sullivan are sadly no longer with us but, thankfully, the music lives on and we in the R & R are prou d that we too are still ar o un d after 77 years and helping to remin d you, o u r audienc e, of the wonderful legacy Gilbe rt & Sullivan left for all of us to enjoy.
