Now that we are beginning to come out of lockdown, some of the local groups will be starting up again in the next few weeks. If you haven’t heard from them already, group secretaries will soon be in touch to decide on the best way forward for your group. We hope that by September, we will be back to regular weekly activity across the whole region.

TRIPLE FFF: The Music of Farrenc, Franck, and Fauré 
A discussion with Joe Davies

Thursday 27th May, 7pm
On Zoom, £4/5

Back by popular demand, Joe is bringing an exciting and intriguing discussion on French music on the 27th May. You won’t need your instruments for this one, just enjoy the music! This is what Joe says:

A triple French spectacular as we listen to the glorious music of Louise Farrenc (1804-1875), César Franck (1822-1890), and Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924). Why are French composers such good orchestrators? Why does French music go so quickly in and out of fashion? And what makes French music sound so… French?

We enjoyed a lovely concert party on Saturday – thank you to all those who performed, and supported for making it such a great event.  We’re fast approaching being able to play in-person again, and we have a live event planned for Sunday 23rd May 2-6pm. There’s a brilliantly balanced orchestra formed, but we still have space for one clarinet player and an oboist.

We had an amazing evening with Peter Fisher and Peter Hewitt performing works by Kreisler, Ravel and D’Ambrosio. 🎶

Thank you to them both for sharing their incredible talent.

It’s important for us to honour HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh with a memory of when he and the Queen met The Cobweb Orchestra on 18th July 2012.

Thanks to Sue Baker for the photos.
