December:

Nutcracker Royal Ballet Company

January:

Melvyn Bragg Looks Back.  He recounts his meetings with four great musical people he interviewed on the South Bank Show, James Galway – Flautist;  Tasmin Little – Violinist; Lang Lang – pianist and Marilyn Horne – Soprano.  We watch the interviews and hear their music – a really good show.

February:

Discovering Rhapsody in Blue.  Watching and listening to the BBC Scottish Symphonic Orchestra as they rehearse and talk about this great piece of music and then play it to us. Lots of interesting insights into how it was originally written and how it developed over the years.

March:

Burt Bacharach His Life in Song.  A programme recorded in the Royal Festival Hall with Michael Grade talking to Bacharach about his life and his compositions with lots of well – known singers, singing his songs.  A truly delightful programme.


Learn the Recorder

Group Leader:
Venue: Group Leader’s Home
Day: Alternate Tuesdays Time: 11:00

This is a friendly group of people who are learning to play in consort, and an ability to read music reasonably well and some knowledge of recorders is required, along with a commitment to practice regularly. You will need to provide your own recorder and music stand, and be prepared to buy sheet music sometimes. There is no other charge.
