Inshe was to be heard at the international singing competition in Vivonne where she received the prize for young talents and, inthe first prize 'Grande Dame'. At the international competition in Marmande, she was accorded the young talent prize in and the special jury prize in During the summer she performed Violetta again on tour throughout France.
Lied and melody have played a central role in her career, hence her many recitals with pianist Emmanuel Christien and her sister Sarah Margaine.
She regularly performs in oratorios. He sings on the most prestigious opera stages of the world: He is studying with legendary Mirella Freni.
Her intonation … is impeccable. She plays with a ripe, absolutely luscious tone. Her use of vibrato is circumspect and period- appropriate. She is scrupulous about observing repeats and her use of ornamentation is elegant and understated. The fluidity and unself-conscious physicality of Gaillard's playing keeps the listener aware that, except for the preludes, this is sunny, dance-based music. An insatiable curiosity, a taste for risk, an immoderate appetite for the whole of the concertante cello repertoire, complete disregard of limits and petty quarrels: The recordings devoted to Vivaldi Cello Sonatas and ConcertosBoccherini Cello Concertos and Bach Arias and Cantatas with violoncello piccolo reaped excellent ratings and several awards.
News and information - Devon County Amateur Swimming Association (A.S.A)
A group of individuals getting to the highest levels by dedication, commitment, attitude and skill. A great example to us all but especially to our younger developing swimmers. I mentioned dedication and commitment and would like to personally thank all those committee members and volunteers who have helped to steer Devon County Swimming Association to a very successful year.
Without your dedication and commitment hundreds of young sports people would have lost the opportunity to compete, train and excel in their chosen discipline. I know I am talking to the committed but please try and get some more volunteers to help both your clubs and the county. Too much is done by too few and if we could just get some more people to come out of the shadows so much more could be done for our sport.
I have had to deal with issues that are not presenting our sports, both swimming and water polo in the best light. This has to change especially aggressive conduct to our officials. These issues are just a distraction and I would say to all clubs and officials put your name forward to help to improve our County. It has been a pleasure to take it through the last 12 months. Mention the word change and lots of people worry.
A change brought in this year was to our website and I would like to say a special thank you to Jane who ran our site for quite some time and to Richard Davies who has relaunched our site and made it into the best county website.
Bill Baker retires from poolside Bill Baker, Devon County Past President has retired from the poolside after many years as a water polo referee. Bills significant contribution to the County on many levels was acknowledged with a presentation at the recent AGM.
He was thanked on behalf of the County by incoming County President Mr Phil Whiting who spoke for us all in wishing Bill a well deserved retirement.
We will have marshals both on the riverbanks and in the water, so every safety aspect has been thought about. Join us at high tide on the River Taw and be part of our very first sponsored Swim event. The lads from Skern Lodge will bring their vast experience of water security to make this an exciting and safe experience. Why not invite a friend, member of the family or work colleagues and go for this swim challenge together??
Please note that is not a race, more a personal challenge. As you can appreciate, places are strictly limited for this premium event so get your application in quick!
We have stacks of fundraising tips if you need help reaching this goal. One room full of past photographs, old programmes, result sheets, engraved silver cups and club memorabilia helped in jogging memories and was of great interest to the older friends of the club while the present swimmers enjoyed the use of the climbing wall and getting their own back on the coaches and poolside helpers by soaking them on the ducking stool. During the evening the group enjoyed a hog roast meal, salads and desserts and were able to purchase special Centenary T-shirts sponsored by local businesses.

Simon's wife Kate, herself an ex-Tiverton swimmer, also attended and selected the winning raffle prize ticket. The event was a fitting celebration of the success of the swimming club over an entire century.
Credit for this goes to all the committed officials and supporters of the club over this time but also to the enthusiasm of the swimmers themselves and to the coaches who have given their time to help the members - young and not so young - reach their individual goals and, of course, to have fun in the process.
Lifetime habits of physical fitness will also have been engendered in so many as a consequence of the efforts of the club and many members continue to swim for pleasure and competition throughout their lives.

Tragic death of young cyclist Junior Heffernan It is with great sadness that I have to report the tragic death of one of our former Kelly pupils and Swim Squad members Junior Heffernan. Junior, age 23, a promising young International cyclist, died yesterday whilst leading the 41st staging of the annual Severn Bridge Road Race near Olveston.
It is reported that Junior was hit by a car coming in the opposite direction during the 3rd lap of the race, which was immediately abandoned. Despite immediate attention, Junior died at the scene of the accident.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his Mum and Dad and family and friends. Junior was extremely kind hearted and his willingness to be generous with both his time and support to others is a true testament to his wonderful character.
His parents were a huge support and shared his love of performance sport. He excelled at Kelly in both his academic studies and in the sport of Triathlon. It was clear that Junior had a gift for cycling and went on to develop his interests and talent further.
