The Arts Manager

"Many people say they love art. In reality, too few appreciate
or understand the development of an artist."
— Mike Turner at a 1975 folk singing workshop in
Birmingham, responding to my 'growing pains'
in acquiring musicality

The Arts Manager

Her acceptance, enouragement and enthusiasm
Help us grow through, "Whoops!" to, "Whoopee!"

She helps us grow trees of our talents
On the soil of our potentials.

Our forest of creative fulfilment
Can ward off the desert's encroachment.

PS: I dedicate this poem to my new classmates and class leader Natalie at Cacophony Choir, Belmont Community Centre, Hereford, who welcomed me as a 'resonant bass' when I joined them on the evening of Thursday, 19 October 2017.

Cacophony Choir meets every Thursday in term times, from 6:45pm to 8:00pm (18:45 to 20:00 by the 24 hour clock). Because next week is half-term, the next session of Cacophony Choir will be on Thursday, 2 November 2017
