Hello everyone smile.gif

All the info about the Leeds Concert is now available at THIS LINK, and at the bottom of the web page is a downloadable PDF of the application form. If anyone has any queries about any of the information, please feel free to email preferably, or PM me.

The closing date for applications is St George's Day, Wednesday 23 April.

If you don't yet know what you're going to play, it's fine if you want to send the form off to apply to perform, and let me know later what you'll be playing smile.gif



If there are any new members or new performers out there, you might like to know that you'll be in good company if you decide to come - there are several newbies who are planning to come and play, and the more the merrier! A couple of experienced event attendees will be acting as "buddies" to any newbies who attend, so as well as myself, you'll always have someone to go to if you've got any questions on the day.


It was a lovely day last year, and everything is in hand to make this year's event just as memorable. The day will be as all-inclusive as possible, with a fun song for us to sing and a kazoo orchestra that everyone can join in biggrin.gif Not to mention a recorder ensemble for all levels of recorder player, a swing band for clarinet/sax players, and of course the Grand Finale. And with solo slots and small ensembles for all woodwinds and strings, it looks like it's going to be a really great day again smile.gif


Many thanks are due to Petrat and Barry-clari for organising the large ensembles, I know they've both got a lot of other things on, so I'm really grateful to them for the input they're giving to the Leeds concert smile.gif

And many thanks also to St George who did the web page and application form for me - he might not have a high profile on the forum, but behind the scenes he's a superstar! biggrin.gif


Look forward to seeing everyone on 31st May! party1.gif

As with last year, if anyone wants to do a duet/trio, I'm happy to oblige - just let me know which instrument you want me to play (clarinet, flute, alto sax, S, A, T recorders). smile.gif

If I can make Leeds, I'm hoping to persuade one or two local folk to come along too! biggrin.gif You've just reminded me to go hunt out my clarinet - haven't touched it since X'mas! ph34r.gif

If anyone wants a dodgy viola player (or even dodgier violinist) for duo/trio...
Would be happy to play...

Re the optional trip to the secondhand music place at Eccleston on the Friday, it's a unit situated in a large antiques centres and I've just remembered that there's an entrance charge, which when I went a few weeks ago was £2.50.

Help! My computer can't open the application form - is there any chance you can put it into another format, such as a word document?

You need to download this program and you'll be able to open it - its free software, the reader is the one you need.

I've emailed it to you to see if that makes a difference - let me know if you still can't open it smile.gif
