Class - 29th September

We welcomed back Emily this was lovely to have her playing with us again! As well as continuing with the 'Christmas Oratorio', we began working on a new piece...'Elizabethan Serenade' (by Ronald Binge)...and there was much discussion as to whether it had once been used as the theme music to radio or TV programme in the dim and distant past! Well, thanks to Wikipedia, I can put everyone out of their misery, and reveal that it was was the theme for 'Music in Miniature' on the BBC Light Programme...long before my time!

Small group items:
  • 'Vocalise' by Rachmaninov - Theresa, Dermot & Angela
  • Concerto in C by Vivaldi - Heather, Annabel, Emily, Mike & Imogen
  • Quintet in G minor by Pepusch - George, Penny, Judy, Kath, Margaret & Joan
