Cobweb Orchestra Performance at the Re-opening of Middlesbrough Town Hall @ Middlesbrough Town Hall
May 11 all-day


Friday 11th May
Rehearsal:10 am – 3 pm
Concert: 4 pm

Rehearsal: Monday 7th May 7-9 pm


Many Cobweb players will have fond memories of events in this wonderful building before it was closed for refurbishment and will now have to opportunity in being involved in one of the first events after its re-opening.

We will form an adult orchestra to play alongside children from Middlesbrough in a performance of Elgar’s “Wand of Youth” suite no. 2.

Elgar conducted the LSO in this piece in the same building in 1909. A visit which is commemorated in the stained glass window naming all the distinguished musicians who have played there.

The performance, because it involves children, is an early evening one, with a rehearsal during the day, but we are hoping some people might be able to juggle their daytime commitments to be there.

Also, players who can only make the performance will still be welcome if they are able to attend a rehearsal on the preceding Monday. The Billingham group have kindly suspended their usual session so that players be there if they wish.
