Don’t miss the chance to work with Royal Northern Sinfonia musicians Iona Brown and Nick Byrne as well as expert conductor Richard Howarth. There will be a shared lunch at this event so please do feel free to contribute.
The enrolment form can be found here
This is a huge event held each Spring which brings tens of thousands of visitors into the town and castle. Cobwebs has been asked if any of our players would like to provide music in one of the local art galleries. The music would be incidental rather than in a concert setting and would be a good opportunity to advertise the orchestra to a large number of people.
Are there any duets, trios, quartets, etc. who would like to do this?
If you are interested, get in touch with Andy (
That’s all for this week, looking forward to great day on Saturday!
Best wishes,
Event Co-ordinator, Cobweb Orchestra
