Guinea Pig Orchestra – Conductors Day @ Shadforth Village Hall
Jun 3 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Join Andy Jackson and the latest batch of budding conductors and become a part of the Guinea Pig Orchestra, allowing yourself to be tried and tested on!

Our 5 brave conductors need a supportive orchestra to practice with so please do come along for a really relaxed play through of pieces from the Cobweb Library. More details on repertoire to follow.

This event will be a Pay What you Think It’s Worth event, so bring along your loose change/notes and pay at the end based on how much you enjoyed the day.

We’ll enjoy a shared lunch on this day too, so please feel free to contribute.

Don’t forget a music stand!

In the past we have stayed at Ridley Hall, but due to its closure in 2017 we now go to Shepherd’s Dene. This weekend is a mix of full orchestral sessions and chamber music sessions which you can organise yourself. Players generously put out their own music to create a temporary library.
