Just sorry I can't make either of those dates mellow.gif
I'm helping to run a sax workshop on 15th April - should be good fun with lots of playing and a concert from professional saxophonists in the evening.

5th May is a major sailing event and I have to play taxis ! !
I should like to have played in a bandstand again. God bless the grandstand and all who take part/who sail in her! biggrin.gif


Hope you enjoy the sax workshop, and the sailing event. smile.gif

There will be more Harborough get-togethers in the future - hope you're able to make some of them. smile.gif

For those of you going to both Harborough and Leicester, the Radetsky March we're playing as the finale at Leicester will also be on one of the bandstand programmes, so you are welcome to hold on to your part for Radetsky if you're also coming to the MH playday on the following Sunday. smile.gif

We're getting very close to the bandstand concert now.

There's a playday on Sunday - details above. I'd like to spend a reasonable proportion of Sunday on the three solo pieces (Nicki's Cavatina, Carl and I's Flower Duet and katyjay's Summertime)

The bandstand gig is on Saturday 5th May. I'm going to aim to start rehearsing at about 10-10:30ish, with three x 30 minutes-or-so playing sessions on the bandstand in the afternoon (one solo spot in each session).

Dress code will almost certainly be plain coloured top (no stripes/spots/patterns etc.)/black bottom half.

If you want to come along on the 5th May, all you need to do is let me or meerkat know beforehand - that way I can ensure there's music for you to play. A programme will appear on this thread about a week or so before the gig : but I can tell you there'll be all sorts of music from light classical to TV themes to pop tunes.

Hope to see lots of forumites there - let's all hope the weather is nice and sunny like it has been these last few days! biggrin.gif

Just some venue details for 15 April. I've booked us a room at Market Harborough Methodist Church, in the Youth Centre (not the church, which we used last time, but in the same building). The venue is booked from 2.00 (opening at 1.45) till 5.30pm.

I won't be around from this friday till next (and I'm having trouble logging onto the ABRSM from home anyway) so if questions crop up, if those of you who are familiar wtih the way the ensemble works could step in with answers that would be great.

Could anyone who needs a lift from the station on Sunday let me know what time their train is due in,please?

I'm afraid I've got to get an early-ish train home this time (18:59). sad.gif Will certainly be up for staying for dinner on the 5th May though. smile.gif

Hi, I'm intending to drive up to MH this time. It would be great if someone could let me know the address of the Methodist church as this will be my first visit there. Failing that perhaps I could meet Katyjay at the station and play follow my leader ?
