Cobweb Orchestra Musical Picnic @ Summerhill Pavilion
Jul 29 @ 11:00 am – 6:30 pm

Rehearsal 12-4.
Audience to arrive with picnics from 4 pm
Performance 5-6.30 pm

As last year, we’ll be performing under the giant marquee, so come rain or shine we’ll host a musical picnic of largely music from Europe, featuring composers such as Bizet, Rossini, Verdi, Chabrier, Delibes, Edith Piaf. The audience are invited to bring food to eat either before the concert and enjoy an afternoon of music.

 

Dress – usual Cobweb concert dress, black bottoms, white top/shirt with a waistcoat and / or neckwear.

Food: bring your own picnic, or share with friends

Parking: tricky, so come by public transport if possible

Please don’t forget to bring a music stand and pegs just in case.

Cost to audience – Free. (There will be a bucket collection, and they will be invited to pay what you think it’s worth) They don’t need a ticket as there will be no pre-sales. Just turn up early for a good place for your picnic blanket.

Participation Fee for Players

Members of the Cobweb Orchestra £ 12.50

Non-members                            £ 17.00

Students in Full Time Education – half the above prices

Wylam Non Residential Weekend @ Wylam Institute
Sep 1 @ 10:00 am – Sep 2 @ 4:00 pm

Our Wylam non-residential weekend (1st and 2nd September) this year will be devoted to music by Mozart. We are incredibly fortunate to be joined by Royal Northern Sinfonia’s bassoon player extraordinaire Stephen Reay, who will coach wind players in the glorious Serenade for 13 instruments k.361, and by Aurora strings violinist Jo Montgomery and ex-BBC NOW violist Chrissie Slater who will lead (mainly) string players in the equally glorious Sinfonia Concertante. The rather complicated timetable for the weekend will be ready in a few weeks, but, for the time being, get the dates in your diary if you want to take part in this special event.
