Residentials

We have two residentials in beautiful settings each year.

Spring Residential at Sedbergh School

Tackling Mahler’s ‘Das Lied von der Erde’ in April 2018

This is your opportunity to have a go at a big work; we have played Saint-Saens’ Organ Symphony, Smetana’s ‘Ma Vlast’, and Tchaikovsky’s sixth symphony. On the Saturday evening we enjoy Andy’s cocktails, and there is an obligatory concert party. The Sunday Morning Supplement looks at the lighter side of music; this year it included ‘The Toy Symphony’ with kazoos and rattles!

Autumn Residential at Shepherd’s Dene

Saturday 1st December – Sunday 2nd December 2018

In the past we have stayed at Ridley Hall, but due to its closure in 2017 we now go to Shepherd’s Dene. This weekend is a mix of full orchestral sessions and chamber music sessions which you can organise yourself. Players generously put out their own music to create a temporary library.

Cobwebbers have been on musical excursions to far off lands.

The orchestra has travelled to Bavaria, Tuscany, Hungary, and Spain.
