Nobody was expecting that our meeting at Wylam in January 2020 would be our last for 18 months so I am really excited to be able to to announce the resumption of this project and that the 15th session will be held at Wylam Institute on Saturday 28 August 2021 from 11.00 am until 4.00 pm.

We have now looked at 79 symphonies and will be resuming our journey in 1782,  The symphonies I hope to look at are 76, 77,78,79,80 & 81.  All of these symphonies have parts for strings, flute, oboes, bassoons, and horns.   Clarinets are welcome to join us and oboe parts transposed for Bb clarinets will be available.
The day will be subject to any ongoing Government & Cobwebs Trustees regulations and guidance and it is hoped that there will be some relaxations by this date.  Further information will be provided nearer to the date.
The preparation of parts for this project is time consuming and it would be appreciated if you could enrol as soon as possible so that I know how many parts I need to prepare in case there is still be no stand sharing and if music has to be quarantined in pads for 3 days before use (the parts for these symphonies are not on IMSLP).  This also allows time to fill any holes we may have in the orchestra.
I look forward to seeing you all again at Wylam on 28 August.
