Cobweb Orchestra Big Play @ Dipton Community Centre
Mar 2 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Join us for our annual Big Play, a chance for all groups to come together and share repertoire on a common theme. This year’s fantastic programme is filling out nicely with all sorts of imaginative interpretations of the theme “Cities”, including Prague, Vienna, Oxford, New York, Paris, Naples, Plymouth, Seville, Kiev, Rio. The pieces might not be always the most obvious…

It’s a Pay What You Think It’s Worth event, so no advance payments, just bring along your pennies (and notes!).

All music will be provided on the day, but please bring a music stand

We’ll be enjoying a shared lunch, please feel free to contribute, adhering to the guidelines set out here: https://cobweborchestra.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Food-hygiene-at-Cobweb-events-1.pdf

It’s really important you let us know you’re coming so we have enough music for you all.
