Lorna Wright

The event will take place in Haxby Memorial Hall from 11.00 until 16.00, with a play-through for friends and family at 15.00.

This rehearsal is open to all interested players, whether or not they play regularly in the Cobweb Orchestra, so please encourage your friends to come along. This is a wonderful opportunity to play one of the great romantic symphonies of the late 19th century – great tunes with a grand Tchaikovsky finale – not to be missed! We will be guided through this work by Patrick Burnett, musical director of the York group.


You can download your own part if you wish from Petrucci:

B flat parts are available for clarinets and trumpets
