What we do

the instrumental group playing

The Instrumental Music Group consists of a small number of woodwind and string players (8, when we are all present), plus two pianists who join us every other week. We mainly play arrangements of orchestral and chamber music from the classical repertoire, plus a few items such as Scott Joplin and Gershwin for variety. 

We are all approximately Grade 4/5 or above to give an indication of the playing ability required. We meet at members' houses (there are three or four of us who host it, but no-one is is obliged to) and we have a lot of fun taking the music we play seriously, though not ourselves!  If you play an orchestral instrument and would like to join us, please ring the co--ordinator for more information or come and have a chat with us on enrolment day.

Reports

July 2017

We continue to hold informal weekly meetings when we enjoy playing a wide range of arranged orchestral and chamber works, selected to suit the members available.

We are always on the lookout for new members, and would welcome enquiries from string and woodwind players (except clarinets who are well represented at present).

March 2017

Our meetings are very informal and we enjoy playing a wide range of arranged orchestral and chamber works, selected to suit the members available.

We are on the lookout for new members as our numbers have diminished recently, and would welcome enquiries from string and woodwind players (except clarinets who are well represented at present).
