Class - 3rd May

We encountered some rather challenging rhythms at this week's class, as we began working on the 'Olympic Fanfare & Theme' by John Williams (composed for the opening ceremony of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics)...but I'm sure we'll work them out by the concert! We also continued with the Bourgeois 'Serenade' and Walton's 'Crown Imperial' - which we even attempted a little faster!

Small group items:
  • Quintet in G major by J. C. Bach - Penny, Diana, Kath, Polly, Mike & Angela
  • Concerto in A minor by Vivaldi - Imogen, Judy, Helen & Joan
  • Gavotte No. 1 (from French Suite in G major) by J. S. Bach (Arr. Neil Butterworth) - Theresa, Anya & Dermot

Would Derek Bourgeios be any relation to Derek Bourgeois?

Ooops...thanks for spotting my typo!
