Workshop with Paul Barritt

We are delighted to offer a one-day workshop with Paul Barritt on Sunday 2nd July.  Details are as follows:


Mozart Divertimento 

Shostakovich Chamber Symphony Op 110a (an arrangement of his 8th quartet by Barshai)

Provisional Timetable

10:00 to 1:00 Rehearsal in Church House, Long Crendon

1:00 to 2:30 Lunch 

2:30 to 5:30 Rehearsal in St. Mary's Church, Long Crendon

5:30 to 6:00 Break

6:00 to 6:45 Informal concert to a small, invited audience

Cost will depend on the number of players, but is expected to be around £25 per person (£10 for under 18s).  Under-16s should be accompanied by an adult.

Players are welcome to join us for lunch at the Eight Bells, just a stroll down the road from Church House, where there is a lovely beer garden.  Alternatively, bring your own packed lunch.

All string players of grade 7+ are invited to apply and we particularly welcome students for what should be a valuable learning experience and any other players who might be interested in joining the Orchestra and would like to give us a try.  In the event of over-subscription, places will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis.
