    Eileen you will be made most welcome. I too was a clarinetist who had not kept it up. I joined with some trepidation having not blown a note in 25 years. You are in good company and will love it!

      Thank you Judith, I am delighted to be joining the orchestra and look forward to meeting you all. I am a little unsure what to do next, I understand I have to buy a ticket for the rehearsals, are these available on- line next week? or do I have to come up to Glasgow in person, can you let me know? thanks Eileen

        No, everything is done online via this website, so no need to come to Glasgow – except for rehearsals, of course… there are some things we can’t do on the web! Please check your email for details.

        Hi Eileen. Like you I gave up playing (violin) for many years. I had always just played for fun and didn’t do any exams, but I just didn’t seem to find time for it in my working life. It was my retirement project to pick it up again – and I am loving very minute of it now, especially in the Merchant Sinfonia. Look forward to seeing you.

    I play clarinet and have been having lessions from Rebecca Whitener, she has sugggested that I could perhaps join the Merchant Sinfonia. She has taught the clarinet section in the past, and she has a pupil who is a member and recommended it to me. She suggested joining for two reasons, firstly when I satrted lessons I said my aim would be to join an amateur orchestra and secondly she believes the orchestra is an excellent way to improve my skills.
    I played when I was at school but did not ‘keep it up’
    I am 57 years old and a GP and have never sat a music exam
    I would be grateful if you would consider allowing me to join the orchestra.
    Thanks Eileen
