Jenny and Louise have organised a festive playalong for Sunday December 20. It will be an online Zoom event, starting at 2 pm and lasting for about an hour. Invitations to the meeting will be sent out by email beforehand.
Louise has selected a variety festive music and will conduct us to play along with recordings of the music. We will be able to hear the recordings, but won’t be able to hear each other. Parts for the music can be downloaded from the IMSLP website. The details are as follows.
TCHAIKOVSKY – The Nutcracker Suite
i) Miniature Overture
ii) Characteristic Dances – a) March b) dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy c) Trepak f) Reed Flutes
iii) Waltz of the Flowers
STRAUSS – Blue Danube
PROKOFIEV – Lieutenant Kije (Suite) – no. 4 Troika only
SIBELIUS – Finlandia
This will be a marvellous opportunity to play together again in these difficult times. We also hope that there will be time for a chat. Our thanks are due to Louise for drawing up the programme and sourcing the music.
We hope to see you on December 20.
