Class - 17th January

We had another couple of potential new members at last Thursday's class...Nicola on clarinet, and Rod on it was a record turn-out for the Broken Consort! As well as continuing with 'I Feel Pretty' and 'Slavonic Dance No. 8', we had our first read-through of 'Cantique de Jean Racine' by Faure - the other piece that we'll be performing with the Songbyrds at our end of term concert.

Small group items:
  • Concerto in E Minor by Telemann - Heather, Alison, Kath, John, Rod, Polly, Diana & Angela
  • 'Allegretto' by J.C. Bach (Arr. H. Brammer) - Judy, Annabel, Theresa, Dermot & Mike
  • 'Quartettino' by Scarlatti - George, Imogen, Maureen, Margaret & Joan
