Albert Hall, North Circus Street, Nottingham
Saturday 6th July 9:40am until 6:00pm
Did you learn to play an instrument when you were at school but haven’t got it out of the case for a long time? Or have you taken up playing an instrument in adult life just for fun? Do you like playing orchestral music? Were you a member of the school recorder group?
If the answer is YES to any of these questions then come to Blow the Dust off your Instrument 2019 course.
Conducted by Angela Kay and Gill Henshaw, this playing day will give you the chance to renew your old skills or put new-found ones into practice in a friendly, relaxed and supportive environment.
The music has been chosen to give scope to players of all abilities and will include Eric Coates’ nostalgic Summer Days, Chabrier’s festive Espana and Rimsky-Korsakoff’s energetic Dance of the Tumblers.
There will also be items for wind band and string orchestra. The recorder ensemble will also have a varied diet of music carefully chosen by their conductor.
The instrumental parts will be sent out in advance of the course, to give you time to get to grips with the notes ahead of the day itself.
Please note: This course is not suitable for players of a standard below Associated Board Grade 2 (except recorders)
