See you soon, I hope

I can’t be at Consett this Thursday (5th Feb), and next week’s half term, so none of us will be there, but I hope to see everyone soon either at the Sage on Saturday or at Ashington on Valentine’s Day or when normal service is resumed on 19th Feb.

New venue for the Co. Durham group

Start of term for Co. Durham group – 8th January 2009
Time – 7.15 – 9.15
Venue – St. Patrick’s Church Hall, Consett.
Although it is on Victoria Road, the car park is on Gibson Street and satnavs would use the following postcode: DH8 5LB.
The car park is adjacent to the Church Hall.
Once you reach the crossroads with traffic lights at the heart of Consett with Weatherspoons on one side and the Braes pub opposite, take the road which takes you in between the two pubs (Braes on the right, Weatherspoons on the right). Go straight ahead; go past the bus station on the left and you’ll reach a set of traffic lights with a bookies on the left-hand side. Take this left. Very soon afterwards, take a right turn which swoops round to the car park. If you go past the Trades Night club, you’ve gone too far. The Church Hall is on your left.

Harelaw group rehearsal May 1st – CHANGE OF VENUE

We have (finally) managed to book the Phoenix Centre for Thursday night’s rehearsal. It’s just a litle bit further up the road from Harelaw School on the opposite side. Denise, the caretaker, says she will open the big gates so we can park in the yard; there is also parking on the roadside.
Venera is coming to look at some of the music for the Bishop Auckland concert, as well as bringing the violinist who is going to play a Beethoven Romance at the concert.
See you there

Harelaw rehearsals

Just a reminder that the Harelaw group is still meeting next week (27 Mar) and the week after (3 April).
It’s because of the school holidays in Co. Durham, which are not the same as in some other LEA areas.
Some people seemed to think we would be stopping because it’s Easter this weekend.
Please pass the word around in case others thought the same.

Newbiggin rehearsals for the spring term

Next Tuesday, 15 Jan, I’d like to start sorting out the mass of music parts that people have kindly returned to us. If you can come early – say, 6:45 – and lend a hand you’d be very welcome!
On Tuesday 22nd Jan we cannot use the Sports Centre, so the rehearsal will be at Moorside First School – the other side of Woodhorn Road opposite the Sports Centre.
I can confirm that we won’t meet at half term on Tues 19th February, and our last meeting for the term will be on 18th March.
We restart on Tues 22nd April.
All the best,
David Hutton

Teesside group

Last night we launched the most recent regional group in Middlesbrough Town Hall, and guess what……?
There was an orchestra of over 30 players there with nearly every instrument represented. What sort of alchemy is it that makes that happen again and again?
Most of the people there were completely new to Cobwebs, but a few regulars put in an appearance and that helped hugely in making it such a successful evening, so thank you for coming.
Thank you, too, to Liz, Alan and Rebecca for all their invisible hard work which made it happen.
If you know any players who live within sensible travelling distance of Middlesborough, let them know about the next session on Monday 29th October.
It was a great start and now we need to keep recruiting to make sure it becomes a viable independent group.
Well done everyone.
