Thank you Rosa

Rosa Li

With much sadness we have to bring news that our great friend and dynamic musician extraordinaire, Rosa Li, passed away over the summer.

Originally from Hong Kong but coming to the UK many decades ago to work as a nurse, Rosa raised her family locally, and was a great supporter and participant of LITL from the outset, performing in the choir, on drums, guitar and with the improvisation group, making great strides in her playing over the last year. She was due to play the famous Rodrigo ‘Adagio’ solo on guitar at our Birmingham Town Hall concert in July, but suffered a heart attack a couple of weeks before. She remained her usual inimitable self and in fine form over the weeks that followed, where Joe and myself were lucky to see her several times – happily her usual tactful way of telling us off had not altered at all!
Rosa’s presence, generosity, infectious personality and wonderful eccentricity will be hugely missed as part of the LITL community … thank you Rosa for brightening our worlds and our Wednesdays!

Rest easy.

We hope to have a celebration concert in the Sutton area later in the year.
