The Musical Book Club
Thursday 3rd September. 6.00 pm

This book club sees us explore Bizet’s Symphony in C – First movement. We’re going to try to play along to a recording – to ourselves when we recorded it in 2011! This, as you know, will be the first time we’re trying this so bear with us – it might take a bit of technical support to get it to work, but we’re developing this all the time!

The link below will take you to where you need to download your part / score, but do get in touch if you need a hand.

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.

For this week’s Book Club, 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.

Cost:
£4/5 (members/non-members)

Enrol:
Because of the difficulties of using Zoom for large groups, membership of the group will be limited to 25 people. However, unlike Cobweb events, where it is usually “Strictly first come on a desk by desk basis”, there is no limit to the numbers of any one instrument that can enrol, so if the first 25 attendees are all flautists and clarinettists, I’m sure that will lead to a very interesting, if slightly biased, discussion.
