Operatic society name Tony Pomeroy as new president
April 25, 2021
TONY Pomeroy has been elected President of the Bridgwater Amateur Operatic Society, succeeding his wife Sue who died last month.
Mr Pomeroy joined the society in 1965 for the production of Brigadoon and there started a life-long association covering more than 40 productions.
The society wrote of Facebook: “Together with wife Sue, Tony has become an everlasting figure at BOS. Tony been a successful musical director – winning the Bristol evening post Rose Bowl for Best Musical on four occasions and twice winning the Best Musical Director at the Somerset Fellowship of Drama David Beach Awards.
“Tony is a life member of the society and has been on the management committee for more than 20 years, taking on such roles as Secretary, Business Manager and Vice Chairman.
“Even though Tony has many other passions – including Bridgwater and Albion Rugby Club, Enmore Park Golf Club, Rugby Union refereeing, Cricket umpiring and supporting his grandchildren, Tony still found time to build sets and maintain the clubroom even though he was actively working on the society’s productions at the same time.
“Tony’s dedication to the society has been invaluable and he has been pivotal in building the healthy society we all benefit from today.
“On behalf of the society and members thank you Tony, and Congratulations on becoming president of Bridgwater Operatic Society.”
