Haydn Symphonies Project @ St. Matthew's Church Hall
Dec 11 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Haydn Project

The 16th session of the Haydn Project is to be held at St Matthews Church Hall in Summerhill, Newcastle on Saturday 11 December 2021 from 11.00 am until 4.00 pm.

 

We have now looked at 85 symphonies and will be resuming our journey in 1785, The symphonies I hope to look at are four of the Paris Symphonies 83 (La Poule), 84, 85 (La Reine) and 87 together with symphonies 89 and 91. All of these symphonies have parts for strings, flute, oboes, bassoons, and horns. Clarinets are welcome to join us and oboe parts transposed for Bb clarinets will be available.

 

The day will be subject to any ongoing Covid precautions and guidance given by Cobwebs Trustees. Further information will be provided nearer to the date.

 

The preparation of parts for this project is time consuming and it would be appreciated if you could enrol as soon as possible so that I know how many parts I need to prepare. This also allows time to fill any holes we may have in the orchestra.

 

I look forward to seeing you all again at St. Matthews on 11 December.

Peter
