Class - 10th February

We had a visitor this evening, Krystyna - she joined in our rehearsal this evening playing treble recorder in both the full ensemble, and one of the smaller groups. I'd added an 'extension' to 'The Hebrides Overture', which means we're now swamped with pages and pages of music, and it's still not finished! We're still gaining speed in 'Wedding Day at Troldhaugen', though not all at the same rate!

Small group items:
  • Heinichen Trio Sonata in G Major - Diana, Kath & Joan
  • The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, by Handel - Annie, Polly, Theresa, Dermot & Mike
  • Finger 'Trio Sonata in G Minor - George, Krystyna, Margaret &Angela
  • J. C. Bach Trio Sonata in G Major - Heather, Judy & Imogen

It's Krystyna with two 'y's. She enjoyed the evening enormously and has gone away to practise hard, and hopes to join us on a regular basis once she feela a bit more confident about her sight reading.
