Class - 24th November

We had another 'whistle stop tour' through our pieces for next week's concert at our class last night. In addition to working on our large ensemble pieces...which I filmed and will be adding to our YouTube channel as soon as I find the time...we managed to get through most of the small group items too.

Here's what we played:
  • 'Caprice for Clarinets' by Clare Grundman - Helen, Theresa & Dermot
  • 'Subjects Obey Army Farm' by Donaldson & Kahn (Arr. H. Brammer) - Heather, Emily, Kath, Polly, Diana & Imogen
  • Woodwind Trio by M. Hedien - Penny, Judy & Mike
  • 'Serenade for Seven' (with 6 players this week) by Ronald Hanmer - Penny, Judy, Annabel, Theresa, Dermot & Mike
  • 'Chants sans paroles' by Tchaikovsky (Arr. Sobrielo) - George, Margaret & Angela
  • Trio in D minor by Boismortier - Emily, Diana & Kath
  • Quartet in D minor 'Tafelmusik' by Telemann - George, Imogen, Heather, Margaret & Joan
  • Something by Handel that I didn't catch the name of... - Annabel, Polly & Angela
