On Sunday 15 May, 2016, we are again holding our informal ‘COME AND PLAY’ afternoon at Burford School (1-5pm), and we’d love you to join us. Poster (pdf)
The programme includes:
Conga del Fuego, Márquez
London Suite, Coates
Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Beethoven
as well as a selection of film music and more!
We'll stop for a break over a cup of tea and a cake (or two), then put on an informal concert for family and friends at the end of the day.
There is no required minimum standard Just bring your instrument and your kids (there will be plenty of percussion instruments which will need banging) and prepare to be part of the music.
If the day gives you the bug to play more regularly, then Burford Orchestra gets together every Monday evening (7.30-9.30) at Witney Community Primary School (followed by a pint at a local pub) to rehearse various popular orchestral classics, and we put on a concert, usually at Burford School, three times a year. We are all amateurs, many of us having picked up our instruments again after decades without playing. The fingers and the embouchure might be a little stiff, the range not quite so extensive, but the fun and sense of joy is just as intense as it ever was!
Hope to see you on Sunday 15 May!
