Haydn Project at Wylam this Saturday 25 January, 11am – 4pm

Players are still needed!

There should be a great string turnout for the Haydn Symphonies day next Saturday but so far there are no trumpets or horns. Another oboe (1st if possible) and another bassoon would be great.  Transposed parts will be available for any clarinets who would like to come along and play oboe parts.

A study day next weekend with composer, arranger and conductor Roland Fudge

Many Cobweb players have already had the pleasure of being conducted by Roland, who leads the Tebay group. Here is a chance to join him for a workshop exploring some of his compositions and arrangements.

Saturday 9 November 2019, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Stainton Village Hall,
Stainton,
Penrith,
Cumbria.
CA11 0EP.
Cost: £12.50 for Cobweb members / £17
Here are a few words by Roland about the event:
“In countless situations I have relished the challenge of composing and arranging music for ensembles with varying instrumental combinations and degrees of playing ability. My “Earth Dwellers” has, consequently, been performed in several versions; perhaps we will have time to do all five movements and experience the organic flow. I always seek to write music that is life-enhancing for the listener and the player; clever but not impenetrable; you can judge for yourselves! Grieg’s Peer Gynt and Elegiac Melodies need no introduction – gorgeous music, even with a few minor adaptations, where essential, by Fudge.”
