I'm moving near chester and I'm really tempted to sign up for this although I've never played clarinet in front of anyone except my ex-partner, my teacher and the examiner.

I'm starting a new job next month though and will have to work 1:3 weekends - is it still ok to sign up? I won't know until next month what my rota will be, and there might be scope to swap weekends anyway.

Also, would it be ok to bring a piano accompaniment on cd to play along to? Or better to ask for a real accompanist? Don't want to trouble anyone.

That's absolutely fine eirlys, just pop a form/payment in the post to me. You'll find we're all a really supportive lot, so it'd be great to see you and hear you play. smile.gif

You can do either eirlys : have a cd accompaniment or we can provide you with an accompanist. smile.gif

When would this be likely to start? i.e. what time in the morning tongue.gif


Rehearsals will begin at 11-ish, the concert will start at 3-ish, and we'll be off to the restaurant/pub at about 5-ish! smile.gif

Or Donny, Stockport and Crewe? blink.gif

*wonders where Stockport is* blush.gif

The ones the change at Sheffield look like they take the same amount of time as the Doncaster ones. unsure.gif

I don't think the trains like crossing the Pennines. laugh.gif

What about National Express - the earliest one to arrive seems to be 11.15am and at least it's straight through. I'm not going to this one, otherwise I would have given you a lift smile.gif
