Class - 12th May

Sorry for the delay (again!)...I did write and publish this last night, but Blogger decided to throw a wobbly after that, and has deleted everything posted on all blogs since sometime on Wednesday (11th)...including what I wrote last night, so here we go again...

We continued working on our large ensemble pieces this evening...and we're gaining speed in the 'Marriage of Figaro Overture'. I added double bass parts to the Shostakovich pieces, and it's added a real depth to our sound...even if I did catch Diana by surprise with some pizzicato notes!

Small group items:
  • 'Shimmering Flutes' by John Cacavas - Annie, Judy, Penny & Imogen
  • Sonata da camera by Janitsch - George, Diana, Kath, Margaret & Joan
  • 'A Simple Serenade' by Gordon Jacob - Heather, Annabel, Helen & Mike
  • 'Vocalise' by Rachmaninov - Theresa, Dermot & Angela
