The AGM of the Cobweb Orchestra will be held on 21 September at around 1 p.m. at St. Paul’s Centre, St. Paul’s Church, Spennymoor, Co. Durham. DL16 7SG.

There will also be a workshop on Brahms Symphony no. 1, led by Andy Jackson, which we hope you will all come along to enjoy.

The creation of a soundscape

This is a unique opportunity for Cobweb musicians, and will feature as part of The Bowes Museum’s 2019 Autumn Exhibition: Guido Reni, The Power & The Virtue. The project has come up at quite short notice and the first session is only a few weeks away, but it would be good to have the same musicians involved in the workshop and the recording, although it is not essential it you are not free on both dates. It is free to take part, and there is even a budget for travel expenses if you are travelling a long way.
