Publicity and Reviews: 

The concerts of the Reid Orchestra will continue in their next season (1920-21) to develop further along the lines of illustrating important tendencies in musical thought, classical and modern.  With increasing public support it should be possible to increase the number of masterpieces by living composers in our programmes, and this without diminishing the number or proportion of classicals, familiar and neglected.  Eminent solo artists will, as hitherto, be engaged with special regard to special compositions:  it is hoped, for example to arrange for a performance of Sir Edward Elgar's Violin Concerto by Mr Albert Sammons, and of Granville Bantock's "Sappho" (the entire work from which the Prelude was given this year) by Miss Denne Parker.   D.F.T.
