I'm hoping to play 'I'll Bid My Heart Be Still'. I tossed up whether to play it last year but decided it had some rather wobbly moments. Not sure they are much less wobbly this year!

wub.gif My favourite. Looking forward to hearing it.
I haven't decided what to play yet, too much choice!!

This sounds interesting and only an hour or so away from me. What sort of standard do you have to be?

There's no minimum standard to take part biggrin.gif

that's right, can you play ONE note? then you're in! party1.gif

or half a note? wink.gif


I suspect that "half a note" is like "half a hole" laugh.gif

It was loads of fun this year. Do come!

Just mentioned this to my husband (to make sure he wasn't cross country running that day and could child sit) and now the whole family want to come! No pressure there then.

I haven't played a concert for around 25 years... and then not on the piano (which is what I'm choosing to do this time). In fact I don't think I've ever played piano at a recital/concert - usually flute (main instrument) or cello (usually in an orchestra). Gulp!

I'll stand to be corrected, but AL gigs tend to be self-regulating as to whether you believe you're an adult learner or not. I personally consider that anything I get paid to play and/or teach won't get played at an adult learner concert, but that's my own ruling purely for me : not to be taken up by anyone else unless they want to smile.gif

My "mental definition" hinged on when you started/resumed the instrument - I figured if you were over-18, then regardless of standard you can play at the AL concert. Though I'd feel mean forbidding someone who started at 17 and three-quarters. And of course, it's not my concert for there to be my rules biggrin.gif Whatever katyjay says goes (in this as in all things wink.gif)
So long as those of the Dip-or-professional level are happy listening to lesser mortals, then us lesser mortals are happy listening back, I reckon smile.gif

PS Form and cheque to be handed over tomorrow biggrin.gif

Though there may be a list of those interested getting your form and money off is the only way to secure a place. Apologies if you knew this already but as others may not fully realise it I thought it worth replying.

I've filled in my form today and put it straight in the post.
I'd like to do a Duet and a Trio so will be skipping a solo otherwise you'll all be fed up of me.

I'm feeling really excited already!

I'm juggling several sets of admin at the moment - but one thought I'd had was that I play bass recorder as well as other sizes, and would be happy to provide a continuo type part in the event of someone wanting to tackle something baroque-y smile.gif.
