The application form is now downloadable from the Concert Info page on the Players for Pleasure web site. The sooner you can get the forms back to me, the sooner I can allocate accompanists, fix up duets/trios for anybody who hasn't already arranged something, and the ensemble directors can start allocating parts. The large ensembles are Clarinet (lois), Flute (Nicia-Clarinet-Flute), Strings (Celeste), Choir and Orchestral (both MusicGuru). Many thanks to the ensemble directors for volunteering!

My teacher PianoGuru is willing to accompany advanced pieces. If anybody wants him to accompany a G7/8 piece, please let me have it as soon as possible, preferably in the post but by email otherwise. One or two other people may be willing to accompany G7 pieces and I'll leave it to them to post here if they wish.

If you're sending pieces by email to your accompanist, please try to send files that are under 1MB.

Please try and get your form sent back within the coming week if possible!

Skylark - have we got to know what piece we intend to play solo for the concert, already? Not sure what I want to do and weather it'll be accompanied. What is the time limit? No Mozart Clarinet Concerto?? wink.gif

FSharpMinor - Sounds great. Would definetely like to do the piece.

FLAUTISTS!! - Is it OK if you PM me your intent to join the flute group and your level on flute?

Clarinet group, Lois, am I on the list to be "in"? smile.gif

You'll see it on the application form when you download it, but it's 6 mins max (which includes any introduction you wish to make) and no, you don't have to let me know just yet what piece you're playing smile.gif


MESSAGE FROM NOVA:

Nova has deregistered from the forum but she's coming to the concert and she'd like to take part in the Strings and Flute ensemble. She can't PM with having deregistered, but I can pass on her email address to anyone who needs to discuss concert stuff.

Would anyone be willing to do any easy violin duet with me? I have a piece in mind (which I did with my teacher a few weeks ago) but am open to other suggestions as well. smile.gif

I'll have a bash Flossie. It would need to be very easy (around Gr 2) biggrin.gif

I think the piece I had in mind is above that. unsure.gif It's in the Baroque Violinist (ed Sheila Nelson, pub Boosey and Hawkes). Do you have a copy of the book to look at? smile.gif The only other duet I have is definitely around grade 4 because it's on the syllabus.

I love the Leeds concerts, but this time the 8th January falls at a time when I am not yet clear whether or not I will be able to make it. As a result, I had better not commit to any pieces, groups or accompaniments just in case I don't come, but you can be sure that when things become clearer I will come if I can biggrin.gif .

And if not, I wish everyone a great day and hope to see you all again in July party1.gif .

Oh. sad.gif Well, could you ask her if she'd like to be in the string ensemble (fingers crossed that she does want to!). Thank you! smile.gif Actually, I think she's got my email address - if she doesn't, would you mind giving it to her for me?


Gerald I really really really really really really hope you can come. It wouldn't be the same without you!!

Nova, you already have my email address. I'm almost certainly going by train this year. Probably the 07.45 from Scarborough, and something around 8.00ish return in the evening, to allow for a meal. M is giving this one a miss. Will probably book the train tomorrow.

Just to say I hope you all have fun .... I feel I'm missing out already reading this sad.gif Would have loved to be involved and had a sax quartet at the ready that I bought last year "just in case" but Jan 8th doesn't work for me this year I'm afraid ..... Maybe I'll make July unsure.gif or if not next year hopefully smile.gif

I've downloaded the application form, but I'm having difficulties in printing it. I'll sort it out over the next couple of days.

Referring to the Kegelstatt trio again, sbhoa has advised me there is also a version for two clarinets and piano, that would give us more choice if we can get a copy and another clarinettist would like to play it with Nicia and I.

You'd better find another willing partner then. I am not reknown for my violin skills biggrin.gif
