***Come and Play!***
Every year we run a short course for orchestral playing in the beautiful coastal town of Ilfracombe in Devon. From Sunday 27th May - Wednesday 30th May.
Players of all levels will be able to enjoy the course this year. We are choosing fewer pieces to learn to give more rehearsal time on each piece. We are also introducing an informal performance opportunity for players on the Tuesday evening, a chance to play your party piece to a very supportive audience of friends. It is always a great few days with a lovely group of players. For more information hit the messenger button or email the address on the flier. We hope to see some of you there!
Don't miss one of our very talented players in a solo recital next month. Click the link below for more information.
Has anyone, ANYONE, got any photos of Julie, Oscar or Sofia from last Saturday? Julie mentioned to me that she has no photos of herself or them except in the maelstrom of the whole Orchestra, and she would be delighted (D.E.LIGHTED) to get one or two.
Apparently, there are more photos of Snape than of Shrek and Fiona, though I know for a definite fact that Shrek and Fiona are more popular than Snape - it may be that there are no photos of Julie, Oscar or Sofia, and this may have nothing to do with their popularity - but there are millions of pictures of Sam who I know for a definite fact . . . . . .
We had blast at our film music concert, 'LAO at the Movies'. Thanks to all who bought tickets, our second sold out concert in a row. Here are some pictures, including some of our players dressed as film characters... Enjoy! (Photos: Chas Watkins and Elizabeth Knowles)
Great LAO at the movies concert yesterday! Loved it all especially La La Land and Pirates of the Caribbean, the fun costumes and the movie themed venue. Well done everyone and thank you.
Our film music concert on 20th January is now sold out. If you missed out on tickets for this concert our next London performance will be at 7pm on April 16th in the Dukes Hall at the Royal Academy of Music. Entrance is free. Details coming soon...
