Residentials

We have two residentials in beautiful settings each year. Further information will appear nearer the time in our events diary.

Spring Residential at Sedbergh School

Friday 3 April – Sunday 5 April 2020

Get the dates in your diary now as it’s the highlight of the Cobweb year! This is your opportunity to have a go at a big work; in the past, 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 a concert party. The Sunday Morning Supplement looks at the lighter side of music, such as playing different instruments. Tutors and special guests will also be available to ensure we get the most out of the chosen pieces. People still find time to eat, socialise and squeeze in the odd bit of ensemble playing.

Autumn Residential at Shepherd’s Dene

Saturday 28 November – Sunday 29 November 2020

This is a beautiful Edwardian country house set in 26 acres of gardens and woodland. The weekend has sessions for the full orchestra with a longer break to give players time to get together to play their own music in smaller groups if they wish. A special surprise guest is invited to lead the Saturday evening session.
