I will shortly be looking into options for dates for the next St Albans event. In the meantime, I thought it would be useful to get your views on anything you think would improve the afternoon.
In particular, I would like to know your views on how much rehearsal time you would like. What do you want to do during rehearsal (eg do pianists just want to warm up by playing a few scales, or do you want enough time to play the whole piece through?) What about those of you doing duets and accompanying - what are your needs in terms of rehearsal time?
The other factor is the accommodation - how did you find rehearsing in the large hall? Was this space adequate? I noticed some of you took instuments out to the corridor - how was this for you? There is another room available that would could book if required, but this would have cost implications.
Please let me know your views and any constructive suggestions you have, and I will try to take these into account next time. Please post here, or PM me if you prefer.
