If I come, I'll bring my violin, but I'm not very good at it.
Could bring guitar too, but I can't sight-read proper guitar music. Can manage a single melody line (if it's not too complicated) or chord symbols.

I'm /so/ tempted to leave all the woodwind at home anyway as I spend most of my time playing keyboards and woodwind.

Would be good to see you there Teigr. smile.gif

Any guitar music would be of the single melody line sort of thing. smile.gif

Now wonders whether to bring guitar too. If I can remember where I've put it. unsure.gif

Check it for mice when you find it... ;-)

I could take my harp, but that's a lot of strings to tune. Bad enough with 4 or 6....
Definitely like the idea of taking just strings. Or at least, no woodwind.
Are we allowed to take percussion (pitched or otherwise)?

Just got back from the ensemble meet. Was really good fun, even though I spent most of the time playing an instrument I can't really play and the rest of it playing one that looked silly compared to everyone else's. ;-)

Many thanks to everyone who organised it all.

I'm at Durham University now, so a bit far to come! But I live near Leicester smile.gif and I've been to most of the days there. The entrance is sometimes round the back. I promise we wouldn't have been hiding smile.gif
