The Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Society in Croydon (1994-)

SC-T Newsletter 1999The Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Society was inaugurated in Croydon in 1994.  It was founded (and then chaired) by Daniel Labonne, who at the time lived in that historic town, just south of London.

The SCT Society was active for some ten years, and it was Daniel Labonne who then offered the inspiration to set up the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Foundation in 2010; we hope to build on the example which the SCT Society has set.

Your reminiscences and observations about the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Society and its programmes will be very welcome as a part of the history which we record on this website.  We’d also of course like to know about previous Coleridge-Taylor related performances, talks and the like which may have been given in Croydon or elsewhere.

Please do post your recollections (and information for our archive) in the Reply box below, or email them to us here.
