Class - 20th September

We had our first class of the term on Thursday...we started work on a new piece 'Les Patineurs' (The Skaters) by Waldteufel...and welcomed a potential new member...John on violin. 'Les Patineurs' skated along nicely...despite the tricky changes of key and numerous repeats...and we didn't scare John all in all it was a very successful evening!

Small group items:
  • 'Five Gershwin Melodies for Four Woodwinds' (Arr. Denwood ) - Heather, Diana, Theresa & Mike
  •  Sonata for Four Treble Recorders by Paisible - George, Penny, Judy, John, Margaret & Joan
  • 'Kegelstatt Trio' by Mozart - Helen, Polly & Angela
