HMSSO Workshop 1 – 2015/16

November 17th, 2015

The first of three workshops which this year has been organised by HMSG, took place in Hamersley Hall and St Catherine’s, and is being directed by Amy Clouter.

The repertoire as always is challenging, and will demand lots of individual practice. This year the orchestra will be performing Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’ from the Enigma Variations, ‘Intermezzo’ from the Hary Janos Suite by Zoltan Kodaly, and ‘Rodeo’ by Aaron Copland.

As usual the workshop began with individual instrumental sections.

Finally altogether for a full orchestra rehearsal

An excellent day of music making. This was a most encouraging first workshop and augurs well for the Concert which will take place at Wyastone on Thursday 11th February. A big thank you to all the tutors who gave their time in coaching the sectional rehearsals, and of course to Mrs Clouter who chose the repertoire and conducted the orchestra.

The next workshop is on Sunday 10th January, so please make sure you practise your orchestral parts regularly.
