We had a lovely celebration for ‘Make Music Day’, looking back at our online efforts over the last year and hearing some great performances and demonstrations from Cobwebbers. Congratulations to everyone who took part and a special thanks to Emma for recapping our CVO journey.

‘Make Music Day’ celebration – Monday 21 June, 7 p.m.

We’re inviting you to join us to celebrate International Make Music Day on Monday 21st June at 7 p.m.

This might be our last online event (ever / for a while…), to take a look back at how we’ve managed to keep playing and engaging with orchestral music over the last year or so.

There’ll be both live and recorded performances, a review of the 6 performances by the Cobweb Virtual Orchestra, and a chance to play along to Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture. You can find the music here: https://imslp.org/wiki/Die_Hebriden,_Op.26_(Mendelssohn,_Felix)

Please sign up by clicking here (and let us know if you have any items you’d like to perform), and you will be sent a link to the Zoom event.

We hope to see you there!

Best wishes,
Andy and Lorna

We had a great session with Joe Davies last week discussing French music and hearing some really interesting examples. Thank you to Joe for another really informative session – we hope to see him in person soon.

We told you of Ian Potts’ passing a few weeks ago and the Tebay members who knew him have put together some lovely memories which you can read here.

We’ve got a little break in events now, but these are activities later this month to give you time to think about getting involved.

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.
