BIZET'S CARMEN: music from the orchestral suites
Sunday, 17th March 2019
2-5pm
Thorganby Village Hall
Main Street, Thorganby, York, YO19 6DA

Join us in exploring the brilliant melodies, luscious harmonies and the evocative emotional atmosphere of one of the most famous opera's of all time: Bizet's Carmen.

It's difficult to believe now, but the first audiences in Paris in 1875 were shocked by Bizet's comic opera and it's scandalous taboos. We'll be playing at the orchestral suites derived from the opera but you're sure to find yourself humming along to at least some of the aria melodies.
As ever, instruments of all shapes and sizes welcome.

The cost to attend this event is £10 (concessions available for under 18s and students £5)

Follow me to enrol online to play Carmen.

FREE BEGINNERS CONDUCTING ORCHESTRA
Tuesday 4th June 2019
1 - 3pm
Room 058, Department of Music, University of York, Heslington, York. YO10 5DD

Another opportunity to enjoy playing some of our easier repertoire while serving as musical guinea pigs for students from the MA in Community Music to practice their conducting skills as part of our collaboration with the MA.

It's free to play but it is really helpful to know who is coming so we can make sure that we have the correct number of parts for the right instruments, and you will also absolutely need to sign up at least a week before and provide us with your car registration details if you would like us to arrange for an electronic parking permit for you so you can park on campus for free.
