Cobweb Orchestra Musical Book Club

Members £4, Non Members £5
ENROL HERE

We are continuing to welcome any Cobweb player to join the Musical Book Club, even if you haven’t already been part of it. Next week’s Book Club will see us continuing to explore one of our favourites: The last movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. The parts and score all match in the Brietkopf and Hartel 1863 edition, so we’ll use that available on imslp and no marking up should be required.

We are also delighted to have a few volunteers that will showcase particular examples throughout the discussion.
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 from Lorna the day before the meeting.

Again, we will be inviting players to stay on the Zoom call longer to join a ‘breakout room’ to allow a chance for members to catch up with one another. Please let me know in advance if there’s particular people you’d like to catch up with and I’ll match you together! Andy is likely to use this feature throughout the session to link up similar instruments or passages of music.

Cobweb Orchestra Virtual Concert Party
Saturday 1st August, 7 pm

After such an overwhelmingly successful concert in July, we have another concert. The line-up involves a harpist, violinist and a piccolo piece, as well as a brass demonstration! It’s a really interesting a varied programme, so please do join us. We’d love to see as many of you as possible there as audience members. Your support last time was fantastic, and I think we can do even better! Please use the enrolment form here to select ‘audience’ and you’ll receive an invite to a Zoom meeting the day before the concert.
