Feedback from the Wylam Weekend
A message from Andy Jackson:

“Thank you to everyone who took part in the non-residential weekend at Wylam. I was delighted that we managed a complete run-through by the end. What an achievement. We even negotiated nearly all the cuts without grinding to a halt. Also, there was some excellent playing in all sections of the orchestra. The singers were very complimentary, (and I don’t think they were just being polite). It might be some time before we’re in a position to invite Rogue Opera up North again, but, when we are, might it be possible to work towards a fully staged performance? Let me know what you think.”

More feedback from players:

“What a wonderful weekend that was and what fun it was to be amongst those splendid young singers. I think they were enjoying themselves as much as we were!”
“I love the Cobweb Orchestra for all the variety and adventure! Long may it thrive!”
