Live Event at Dipton

We are delighted to be able to host our first live event on Sunday 23 May, 2-6pm in Dipton. On the basis of a full risk assessment, very strict procedures will be in place to ensure that the event is safe.  Participants must commit to reading and adhering to the rules that can be found in the Participants’ checklist

We know you will understand that we need to run this at a limited capacity, and we will be looking for a balanced orchestra – so please sign up early. Once we know the event is viable, you will be emailed to confirm that you either have or do not have a place at the event. Please therefore only transfer payment once you have had a place confirmed.

In order to attend, you’ll need to download and print your own parts. More instructions on how to do that will be sent after you have been confirmed as having a place. We’ll be looking at the following:

Rossini Overture to “The Thieving Magpie”

Schubert Symphony no 9 in C Major “The Great”

Brahms arr. Dvorak Hungarian Dances nos. 17-21

Remember to bring your own refreshments, as there will be no sharing facilities.

To find out more about the safety guidelines and procedures, please read the Risk Assessment, the Participants’ checklist and the trustees’ document Return to live music.

To enrol, please click here. Once  again, if you can’t make the date/location but would like to return to live events, please complete this form here

Lastly, please keep 21 June in your diary as we are looking to hold an event to celebrate “Make Music Day”. More info to follow soon.

Best wishes,
Lorna Wright
Event Coordinator, Cobweb Orchestra
