Our study days usually end with a ‘play through’ of a particular piece of music. These are free and open to anyone who would like to come and listen. Information can be found in the Events Diary.

The Cobweb Orchestra also has off-shoot groups who give a variety of performances at various venues.

Haydn Cello Concerto

Sunday 28 October, 6.30 – 8.30 pm
Dalston Village Hall, Dalston, Carlisle. CA5 7QA.

The excellent young cellist Neil Sild will be our soloist, with the orchestra conducted by the ever popular Joe Davies. This informal performance will conclude a day especially for cellists, which has been organised following  a kind bequest from the husband of Pam, who used to play cello with our Dalston group.

All Mozart

Sunday 4th November, 6 pm
Bowes Museum, Durham. DH12 8NP

A chance to listen to sublime music in beautiful surroundings! The orchestra will be performing the Overture to ‘The Marriage of Figaro’, an arrangement of ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik’ by our very own Andy Jackson, and The ‘Haffner’ Symphony No. 35 in D major. Joining them for this occasion will be two wonderful soloists: Jo Montgomery (violin) and Chrissie Slater (viola) in the ‘Sinfonia Concertante’ for violin, viola and orchestra.
Tickets for the concert are £11 (£10 concessions) and are available from Bowes Museum Reception, Telephone:  01833 690606

Elvaston Ensemble

Friday 14 December, 7 pm
St Mary’s Church, Shincliffe, Durham. DH1 2ND

The Elvaston Ensemble will be returning to Shincliffe to continue to raise funds for the Cobweb Orchestra at Ludworth. They are all Cobweb players: Chrissie (flute), Anita (oboe), Tracy (clarinet), Rye (bassoon) and Clare (horn). This time they’ll be performing some Christmas music so you may even get the chance to sing along!

If you’re too busy with Christmas preparations and can’t make this one, there’ll be another chance at Shincliffe in June. Watch this space!
