Loss of an outstanding GSSME performer

It saddens me to have to share the news of Geoffrey Shovelton’s passing on July 4th. He was a wonderful D’Oyly Carte tenor and the Artistic Director of our GSSME group for a few years, along with the assistance of his wife, Deborah Clague, who passed away just a few weeks ago. They both will be missed. RIP, together again.
