New term

Tonight was the second rehearsal of this term, and we were very pleased to welcome Catherine and Malcolm, two new French Horn players. We are fast approaching a full brass section!

Sibelius’s Finlandia went well – if only the cellos could remember the repeats! I blame the panic which sets in when the notes have two black bars through their tails – all discipline disappears once such horrors loom up.

An arrangement of Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance No 1 may only live a short life in our repertoire – altogether too few notes! Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an exhibition supplies a piece on the theme of politics. A prize for anyone who knows the composer’s first name (without Googling it!).

Please remember that next Monday is a Bank Holiday – no rehearsal.
