The Rite of Spring – 2nd Study Day

34 intrepid players braved the snowy weather and gathered at St Cuthbert’s Church Hall, Darlington on 19th January for our 2nd study day on Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.
Just over half the orchestra were attending their first study day whilst the rest had already experienced one day and had come back for another one!
We had a great day, different to the 1st one, but as successful and thoroughly enjoyable. There was some exceptionally fine brass playing which kept parts of the work very tight, rhythmically and time wise.
Alexe Finlay (2nd violin) very kindly took some quirky photos during our lunch break.
If you haven’t yet experienced a study day on this great work, do think about getting along to the 3rd one – Saturday 16th February 2013 at York.
