Class - 17th November

With only two classes left before our end of term concert, we were busy, busy, busy last night! We whizzed through our large ensemble pieces...which were all sounding much better now we're not so top heavy...and through two rotations of small group items too!

Here's what we played:
  • 'Caprice for Clarinets' by Clare Grundman - Helen, Theresa & Anya
  • 'Subjects Obey Army Farm' by Donaldson & Kahn (Arr. H. Brammer) - Heather, Emily, Kath, Polly, Diana & Imogen
  • Woodwind Trio by M. Hedien - Penny, Judy & Mike
  • Trio Sonata in G Minor by Boismortier - Annabel, Polly, Imogen, Margaret, Angela & Joan (though not all at the same time!)
  • 'Serenade for Seven' (with 6 players this week) by Ronald Hanmer - Penny, Judy, Annabel, Theresa, Anya & Mike
  • 'Fantasy' by Faure (Arr. L. Moyse) - Heather, Helen & Angela
  • Trio in D minor by Boismortier - Emily, Diana & Kath
