Class - 30th June

It was good to be back nearly up to full strength last night, and our large ensemble pieces are sounding good, even though we'd picked up some speed in the 'Marriage of Figaro' which took a few people by surprise! With only a couple more classes before our concert, we had a 'whistle-stop' tour through (nearly) all the other concert items too...a dress rehearsal for all the room & personnel changes in next week's final rehearsal!

Small group items:
  • 'General Radetsky goes Cuckoo' by Michaelson - Heather, Annie, Helen & Mike
  • Telemann Trio Sonata in F Major - George, Imogen, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Trois Duos de Mendelssohn et Lachner' - Judy, Diana & Angela (with substitutions of Heather & George!)
  • 'Summertime' by George Gershwin - Penny, George, Annabel, Kath, Theresa, Mike, Margaret & Joan
  • Trio Sonata in D Minor by Quantz - Annie, Annabel, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Shimmering Flutes' by John Cacavas - Annie, Judy, Penny & Imogen
  • Trio Sonata in G Major by C.P. E. Bach - Diana, Kath & Imogen
  • 'Salut d'Amour' by Elgar - Penny, Theresa & Mike
