Well we finally have a date for the Scottish Forum event!!! It's going to be Sunday the 10th of April 2011!!!
It will be held in the centre of Glasgow, and I for one am very Very VERY excited about it!! So I thought I would create a little thread on it, for anyone's ideas and thoughts, and to see who else is as excited as me!!!!!
Hope you can all make it!!!! EVERYONE is welcome!! biggrin.gif

Ok everyone, here goes!!! The website is now LIVE!!!!! You should be able to find everything you need on it, if you have any questions please pm me!

To make it very clear this event needs to be OVER 18's ONLY due to the venue. This is stated several times throughout the website, and cannot be changed.

The closing date for entries is the 12th of March, so plenty of time to get those forms posted in! biggrin.gif

So here is the link!

I'll just put on record my congratulations to you, muzikalbadger. It's been a long time waiting for the first event north of the border, and you've already pulled a load of stops out, and found a lovely venue. Well done smile.gif

Particularly if you live in Central/Southern Scotland, time to stick this date in the diary, and to give muzikalbadger your support : she's worked very hard. smile.gif

Let me be the first to say I'm looking forward to it. smile.gif Quite nervous as I'm very shy and I've never been to an event like this before although it could be interesting to meet fellow forumites and see what they actually look like!

I'm afraid it clashes with the Scottish Recorder Orchestra rehearsal in Stilrling, so I for one won't be able to come...

Great news biggrin.gif I have no idea what goes on at these events but will def be going! Is it just a chance to have a chat with other players or does everyone bring their instrument too? You asked for ideas Muzikalbadger- how about choosing a couple of pieces that people can pre-prepare for a play-along

Thanks for the link Sbhoa!!!! I'm using your events and the players for pleasure, and any similar events as a guideline as i've never done this before!! biggrin.gif They look fab!! Loubrad, we will hopefully have a couple of ensemble pieces, and hopefully a big finale piece everyone can get involved with! Also thinking about possibly a couple of choir numbers, although not too sure yet! Obviously there will be the opportunity for solos/duets too, and accompaniments can be provided! What instrument do you play? Will be great to meet you on the day!!!!!! (and from what i've seen about other forum events there will also be plenty of chatting too!! tongue.gif )

I have never yet attended a forum event, but am very tempted by this one. It's still a heck of a long way to go, but I would really like to meet some forumites in person and make music. I can't commit to it yet, but would like to get involved in an ensemble if possible, or maybe play a flute solo if someone can accompany and if it's okay to only be Grade 5-ish.

No minimum level for solo playing at forum events.
