Class - 17th May

We weren't in our usual rehearsal venue this week. Instead, we were split between two of our members' houses...which meant that we were unable to rehearse as a whole group, but that didn't mean that we were slacking:

At Angela & Mikes:
  • Cocerto in C by Vivaldi - Heather, Theresa, Polly, Mike & Angela
  • 'Minuet' from Divertimento No. 3 by Mozart - Polly, Theresa & Mike
  • 'Aria' by Ibert; 'Valse Harmonique' by Simon Ballard; & 'Tarentelle' by Gaubert - Heather, Helen & Angela
At Kath's:
  • Sonata by Marcello - Judy, Diana, Kath, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Mandoline' by Debussy; 'Two Cuban Dances' by Cervantes; 'Sailor's Hornpipe' by Wyver; and 'The Swan' by Saint-Saens - Penny, Dermot & Imogen
  • Trio Sonata in C minor by Quantz - Penny, Diana, Margaret & Imogen
  • Sonata in D minor by Boismortier - Judy, Kath, Dermot & Joan
