A huge congratulations to those who performed as part of the Virtual Concert Party last weekend. Thanks to everyone as always for your support too – it’s always nice to see you there. Talking of which, our next Virtual Concert Party is part of our 25th Anniversary on the 3rd October. Maybe you have a piece you’d like to share that brings back fond memories of your Cobwebs experience? For more information, please see the website here and do let Lorna or Andy know if you’d like to get involved in performing!
Some of you may be aware that we were planning an event in Haxby on the 19th September. Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty of the latest government announcement, we are going to have to put this on hold until we have had chance to work out whether it can indeed go ahead.

Cobwebs is officially (almost) back! Thanks so much to those in the Guinea Pig Orchestra who took part in our experiment on Saturday. They played 2 Symphonies and 2 Overtures (not bad for a 3 hour session!) and we’ve had great feedback so far with Dave Wood stating it was the “best thing that’s happened since March!”  We are preparing now to see if we can hold events in this new normal so watch out in the coming weeks for that, as well as watching out for information from your groups. In the meantime, we have 2 events online this week we’d love you to get involved with, as well as something new for next week led by Catherine, flute player from Tyneside group.

It’s getting exciting planning our anniversary weekend, despite the fact we can’t play big events in person we hope you’ll get involved. I hope you enjoyed reading the Silver Trumpet. If you missed it, you can read it here.
We are particularly looking forward to experiment with those who signed up for the Guinea Pig Orchestra tomorrow in a first rehearsal (of sorts) back.
Don’t forget that the deadline for the next Cobweb Virtual Orchestra event is the end of this month so enrol HERE if you want to be involved. There’s two fantastic events next week we’d also love you to get involved with…
