What an amazing event we had on Saturday night at the Virtual Concert Party. Congratulations to those who bravely put themselves forward to perform – you all did fantastic. Thank you also to the 42 of you who were in the very supportive audience! It was so nice to see so many of you and we hugely appreciate your support. We’re thinking of putting on another one next month, so let us know if you want to offer a performance. We already have a few players interested, so do get in quick if you want to perform!  Here’s a few lovely comments we had from people:

Thank you for organising the concert party last Saturday. I’m always up for new experiences and that was certainly a first!

I really enjoyed the concert tonight. Thank you. I was considering joining the orchestra just before lockdown and after seeing you all tonight I’m now even more motivated.

I really enjoyed the concert party. It was the best way so far of giving a feeling of connection with those involved – because the performances were live.

Tomorrow sees another instalment of our Cobweb Orchestra Musical Book Club and there’s still spaces for you to sign up.

Cobweb Orchestra Musical Book Club
Thursday 9th July, 6pm
£4 Members, £5 Non Members

We are continuing to welcome any Cobweb player to join the Musical Book Club, even if you haven’t already been part of it. This week’s Book Club will see us delve deeper into the 3rd movement Scherzo and Trio from Schubert Symphony No. 9 by playing small segments and discussing the score in more detail. We are also delighted to have a few volunteers that will showcase particular examples throughout the discussion. The link below has clarinet parts in Bb and F horns, but no Bb trumpets. You can also access the score from there too.  All the parts have bar numbers and rehearsal letters, so no marking up is required.
Symphony No.9, D.944 (Schubert, Franz) – IMSLP: Free Sheet Music PDF Download

We will meet on Zoom, which works on all computers, tablets and smart phones. You don’t need to have any special programmes or apps on your device to make it work, you just follow a link which will be sent to you.

Finally, keep an eye out next week for the enrolment for the next Cobweb Virtual Orchestra!

I look forward to seeing some of you tomorrow.

Best wishes,
Lorna Wright
Event Coordinator, Cobweb Orchestra
