Cobweb News 41 – 2013

Dear All
We had a busy weekend with an event on each day. Saturday saw a large orchestra gathered at Haxby, York for a fantastic study day on Sibelius’ 2nd Symphony, conducted by Jonathan Brigg. I thought at the start that we’d chosen a work that was too difficult but with Jonathan’s superb conducting and guidance we made enormous progress in no time at all. The play through at the end of the day was amazing.
On Sunday we had the launch of the first Cobweb book “The Cobweb Orchestra: a Wonderful Obsession” and the first Cabaret Ensemble CD “Footloose and Puffin’”. It was lovely to see so many people at Sacriston, including people who we haven’t seen for a while. Both the book and CD are great and a must buy for Christmas. I’ve attached the order form to this message.
