On Saturday, I got a call from one of the orchestras I play with occasionally. I was invited to an orchestral workshop all day on Sunday, and had the great pleasure of working through Tchaikovsky's 1st Symphony, which was unknown to me until then. That was a good day out, and a welcome break from the pressures of work, although quite tiring. Now, I am trying to remember the various commitments to orchestras that are lined up over the next few weeks, and this is as good a place as any to keep a list:
  • Reading Youth Orchestra: Sunday 21 March - Rossini: Tancredi Overture, Saint-Saens: Cello Concerto No. 1 (Soloist: Oliver Howell, RYO Principal), Haydn: Symphony no. 104 (London Symphony) - Venue: Christ Church, Henley-on-Thames.
  • Crowthorne Symphony Orchestra: Saturday 27 March - Malcolm Arnold: Little Suite No. 1, Chabrier: Espa├▒a, Max Bruch: Kol Nidrei (Soloist: Jennie Brown), Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 - Venue: The Old Gym, Wellington College, Crowthorne
  • Langtree Sinfonia: Sunday 9th May 2010 - Sibelius: The Swan of Tuonela, Schumann: Piano concerto (Soloist: Nils Franke), Schumann: 3rd Symphony - Venue: Dorchester Abbey
You'd be most welcome to pop along and see any of these performances. There will probably be tickets on sale at the door. Let me know if you want to come and listen!
