Dear all,
Many congratulations to those who played their concertos last Sunday in York, it was a fantastic event – well done to all those who went along and supported. Andy said to me ‘I knew we had good players, but I didn’t know they were that good!’ – So you all did great! Some great photos were taken and you can see these here

A Day at The Ballet – this Saturday!
Sage Gateshead, NE8 2JR
1.30 – 7pm

We’re absolutely delighted that Patrick Burnett will be conducting this day as sadly Peter Crompton is now working abroad and is unavailable. It’s going to be a brilliant day, looking at works by Tchaikovsky, Delibes, Adam and more…
You can sign up at Sage Gateshead Box Office by calling 0191 443 4661 or by going to the box office in person on the day. However, please can you let me know that you’re intending on coming!

I would recommend not trying to book through the online system as there is no option for Cobweb Members on there. Do just get your ticket on the day.
