‘Make Music Day’ Concert Party @ Zoom
Jun 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Every year, music societies around the world celebrate Make Music Day on 21st June. So to join with these celebrations, we have a lovely event being planned and we are inviting you to join in as a performer or as an audience member.
As usual, everyone will welcome to play, sing, recite, demonstrate, make jokes, etc. but the big difference is that some of you might be able to meet up and play live, sharing your performance with the audience via Zoom. We are hoping, that as restrictions are lifted slightly, you might want to gather a small group of friends to play chamber music, quartets, duets and perform as part of this celebration.  We will of course still accept solo performances too, but we know lots of you are already getting together so please, share your music with everyone!

Live Rehearsal Event @ St. Paul's Centre
Jun 26 @ 6:49 pm – 7:49 pm

We are delighted to be able to announce the next live event will be on Saturday 26 June, 11-4pm in Spennymoor. Despite any changes that may be announced to restrictions, we are continuing to work on the basis of a full risk assessment and very strict procedures will be in place to ensure that the event is safe. Participants must commit to reading and adhering to a checklist of rules that will be provided in advance.

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. The repertoire that we will be playing will be decided once we know who is coming along.

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

£12/15 (members/non-members)

Attending the event costs £12 (members) or £15 (non-members) and you can make a BACS payment using the following details: A/C: 65560297 Sort Code: 08-92-99 Reference: “SPENNY/your surname”.

If you need to send a cheque, please do send this addressed to ‘The Cobweb Orchestra’ to 5 Valeside, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE15 9LA

Please do not bring cash on the day if at all possible.
