I can certainly bring some flute stuff (I think I still have most of my ensemble music) and my embouchure is mostly back after my accident so I will be able to play it.  :lol: I also have some piano duets so will try to remember to bring those too.

There will be 6 flautists if they all bring their flutes.

 You should all now know who will be your accompanist. Please get the music off as soon as possible.

With only a couple of weeks to go here are a few last minute bits of information.  
The Concert is in the church which may be several degrees cooler than outside summer heat if we still have it so do bring a cardigan or something similar (and maybe consider legs/feet).
Non pianists bring a stand if you are able. Don't worry if you are on public transport and it's too heavy or bulky as if others bring one there will be enough.

There is a big car park behind the church and you need to ring the bell which is to the left of the church door to be let into the building.
My number and Katyjay's are on the concert web site (see first post on this thread) in case you have any problems on the day. Katyjay has kindly agreed to be the contact person for station pick up if needed. If you post on here expected arrival time maybe it will be possible to coordinate that.
Remember your packed lunch though there is a Tesco store and Stalybridge town centre less a mile away.
If you don't live too far away and would like to contribute some home baking for refreshments I'm sure everybody will be grateful. 
The meal afterwards will be at Wetherspoons which is about half a mile from the station. 
Don't forget your instrument and music. You should have originals with you. Do bring the original of the accompaniment too even if your accompanist prefers to play from the copy. 
Last (I think) but not least don't forget that we are there to enjoy and share our music wherever we are on our musical journey.

 

 

Any questions please ask.

I wish you all a successful event, and sorry I have had to miss for two years running !  (Have to go to a wedding in Hertfordshire)

Dear Stalybridgers... I hope you have a wonderful time next week. Like fsharpminor, I've been absent for two years running but hope I can come next year.

 

I'm in Costa Rica and not coming back to the UK this summer - saving up for a long stay next year.

 

Good luck and enjoy yourselves!

Slight technical problem. Wetherspoons have opened on time today but won't reserve us space because it's the opening weekend. I'm not a happy bunny but there isn't a lot of choice around there and the location is convenient. Hoping that an advance party can spread themselves out on enough seats for us all (before buying drink?)

I have booked July 21st next year. Subject to confirmation early next year when I will check that there is nothing at the church that has had to take precedence.
