In the old days Frank A. Terry was with Catlin's Pierrots, making people laugh at Colwyn Bay and Scar-borough. The last war came and saw Terry in the Army. He won corporal's stripes, qualified as a P.T. instructor, and, with another corporal, won a El prize for singing ' When Paderewski Plays' on Clarence Pier at Southsea.
Demobilised, Frank Terry returned to Catlin's Pierrots, started on his own with a show called ' The Optimists ', formed his own concert party, ' The Super-Optimists' in 1922, and played the summer at Colwyn Bay. Nine years later he was lessee of the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, and first gave to the public his concert party which has won fame as ' Pleasure on Parade '.

String Quartet in E flat, Op. 127 played by the Griller String Quartet -Sidney Griller (violin), Jack O'Brien (violin), Philip Burton
(viola), Colin Hampton (cello)
Beethoven's Quartet in E flat, Op. 127, was commissioned by Prince
Galitzin-to whom it is dedicated-in 1822. But Beethoven was entirely occupied with his Ninth Symphony and was unable to begin work on the quartet until 1824, while staying among the pine woods of Baden.
' In it', says Vincent d'Indy, 'we find the crowning expression of that love of nature of which he gave such wonderful evidence in the course of his career.'
It is in four movements, all of which are built on elaborate lines. Particularly noteworthy is the second movement, Adagio ma non troppo, which consists of a theme and five variations.
