Finally, a note from member David Joy, about the BBC Virtual Orchestra:
If you have very good eye site you may have seen the Billingham Cobwebs on the BBC Iplayer ‘Get Playing’ Virtual Orchestra. I found us at 40 secs and again at 51 secs as well as on the cover picture (far right level with David Baddiel’s glasses) Did anyone see any other Cobweb players on the clip?
That’s all for this week, I hope the AGM goes well, and I hope to see many of you at the Library event in a few weeks time.
Best wishes,
Event Co-ordinator, Cobweb Orchestra
