Cobweb News 03: 26.01.16

Dear all,
We’ve had two very successful events over the last few weekends, well done to all those who took part!
Firstly, there’s a bit of news from Andy:
Underground Orchestra on BBC Radio 3
Radio 3 is running a series of short documentaries about Making Music’s “Adopt a Composer” programme. They will be after “In concert” each night between Monday 8th February and Tuesday 16th February. Because of the varying length of the live “In concert” broadcasts, the programmes may start any time between 21.15 and 21.50.
The piece about Cobwebs’ collaboration with our adopted composer Michael Betteridge will round off the series on Tuesday 16th Feb.
I’m sure lots of you will want to listen in.

**Upcoming Events**
Saturday 30th January, Sight Reading Day with Andy Jackson
Newbiggin on Lune Public Hall, 11-4pm

Join Andy this weekend for the last instalment of the Month of Days, focussing on Sight Reading. It’s a tough skill and one we could all do with practicing! Do come along for a relaxed day going through some hints and tips for sight reading. The enrolment form with more information is here.
Saturday 13th February, The Big Play
Dipton Community Centre, 12-6pm

Lots of you have already signed up for The Big Play which is fantastic, but we know there are more of you out there who intend on coming and we really need to know so we can provide the right amount of music!
