Hi hilary, it's will from nco. I just wondered if you could tell me where to find good baton makers. I remember you telling me one name in london but i have forgotten! I also wanted to know what batons you use. Thank you for helping us give a great concert in birmingham and i'm looking forward to seeing you in the summer.
Best wishes,

Colin Bannister

We greatly enjoyed your varied Last Night of the Proms programme at Lowestoft Marine Theatre on 16 September, your informative and also witty introductions, your tempi,and the way that you brought out the contrasting contributions from the different sections of the orchestra, the latter bringing refreshing new colour to this fine orchestra, whose Lowestoft concerts we have enjoyed since the very start of the residency.

Dear Mr Wetton,
My mother and I are very much looking forward to seeing you conduct the London Concert Orchestra on Saturday night at the Birmingham Symphony Hall for the fantastic Last Night of the Summer Proms. Particularly looking forward to Lark Ascending and the fantastic Hebrides Overture.
Kind regards,
Yvette Thomas (Miss)

Mr Glyn Evans

Dear Mr Wetton,
Having sent the first message I now note you personally moderate this guestbook and so I can speak freely. I could not help notice your minor thoracic spine curvature during the concert. While not noted by most people, there is a slight forward curve and I just wondered if your orthopaedic surgeon has done the test for Osteoporosis, that is a slight shortage of calcium in the bones which predisposes to hip fractures?

If not, you should have a DEXA Scan to measure your bone calcium levels.

If you have any queries on this please get in touch.

Best wishes.

Mr Glyn Evans

Dear Mr Wetton,

What a fabulous evening of Classic Carols at the Royal Albert Hall yesterday. I really sang my heart out and your extremely humorous comments made for a very memorable evening.

As an orthopaedic surgeon I was naturally interested in your recent fractured hip and there is something about that I would like to mention if you care to get back to me.

Very best wishes,

Glyn Evans

Wim Rijstenberg

Dear mr. wetton
Please can you help me to get the conductor scores of the Tom Parker project "the comandments" i like to perform this project in Holland with one of my choirs. It is verry hard to find the sheetmusic for the orchestra I think it is not published. You where the conductor on the CD recording. So, I thought may be you can help
me. Thanks for reply. Greetings, Wim Rijstenberg.

Paul Vincent

A contact in Surrey has suggested you might be interested in the work of my grandfather Thomas Dunhill. I am building up a website (above) about his life and work, and also trying to facilitate some re-evaluation of his music. With best wishes. Paul

I fondly remember my time in the Milton Keynes Chorale, and all the great concerts in Stantonbury Theatre with you and Ian conducting. Choral music has always been a part of my life, and I created Note Perfect in 2001 to help and people who enjoy choral music.

Samantha Lankester

Dear Hilary,
It's now about 20 years since you were my music director a St Paul's Girls' School, where the love of music really took hold on my life. I remember watching your orchestra rehearsals in the Singing Hall, fascinated by the magic of watching the transformation from noise to music.

I have just read about you in Hemihelp magazine, as you conducted the Live@Lloyds concert in May this year. My 5 year old son has hemiplegia, hence why I read the magazine, thanks for your involvement!

After being organ scholar at Christ's I trained as an accountant and ended up moving to Uganda. I married a Ugandan musician who has just been appointed Director of Kampala Music School, and conducts the Kampala Symphony Orchestra.

I would love for us to be back in touch, and wonder if you fancy a trip to Uganda? I work for a tourism company so could get you some good deals.....

All best

George Byrne

Hilary, I remember performing in the 2009 Stage Choir at the Classical Roadshow's 'Widecombe Fair'. I will never forget the warm up you taught us-'Ninety naughty nuns nibble nuts after nine'. Considering our school was catholic with a slighty forbidding headmistress. Thank for the enriching experience you gave us.

Dear Mr Davan Whetton,
it's been a long time since we last met.
I was recently at an LSO concert at Windsor castle and afterwards enjoyed dinner with Sir Colin Davis and Kathryn McDowell.
Yor name came up in conversation and I made a point to say hello and not least to thank you for your kind tutelage all those years ago.
Your efforts were not wasted. I enjoyed a wonderful 12 years as a musician in the Royal Marines Band, five of which were spent on the Royal Yacht Britannia travelling the world with violin and Trumpet.
I'm delighted for you that your own career has been so rewarding and successful. I hope one day our paths will cross again and I can buy you a glass of champagne!
All the best for 2011 and beyond.

David Simmons

Hi Hilary, I was interested in seeing that Liza was considering a performance of Andy's Requiem. Has this progressed at all? I am regularly in touch with Andy Worton-Steward's sister and brother in law who are close friends of mine. I am sure they would be interested if more performances were being considered.
Happy New Year, Regards, David Simmons
