Class - 28th April

A new term means new music...and we started this evening's class with the Overture to 'The Magic Flute' by Mozart...we just need to get it twice as fast by the end of term concert! We also revisited a couple of old favourites, the 'Waltz' and 'Polka' from Shostakovich's Jazz Suite No. 1...although they didn't seem all that familiar to everyone!

Small group items:
  • Sonata in C by Gottfried Keller - Imogen, Penny, Kath, Polly, Margaret & Angela
  • 'Sheep May Safely Graze' by J. S. Bach - Judy, Annabel & Dermot
  • 'Adagio Cantabile (Mrs Winslow's Soothing Syrup)' by Elgar - Helen, Annie, Diana, Theresa & Mike
