Just to let you know that the information for this year's Forums Concert in Woodford Green, Essex, on September 22nd is now available. chorale.gif piano.gif

If you are interested, please PM me giving your email address and I will send you all the info. smile.gif

Last year, all the solo slots had been taken after about a fortnight, so if you want the chance of a solo, it's best to book early! laugh.gif

I am interested in going, dependent on when college starts. Can I send my application form and book a solo slot, but withdraw if I find I am unable to go?

You can, because like last year there may well be a 'waiting list' of people wanting to play solos, so if you had to drop out there would certainly be someone only too willing to fill your shoes laugh.gif. But surely you won't have college on a Saturday anyway?

No, but if it starts before the 22nd, then it might mean my dad will have to travel up to Norfolk from London on the Friday by car, take me down to Woodford, take me back to Norfolk, and then travel back down to London, so it will be a bit awkward (considering the money for the petrol ohmy.gif). If it starts after the 22nd, then I'll be able to stay down in London for the week to avoid all of the travelling up and down. I might see what the trains are like...

Now to decide on a piece...unsure.gif

Mine's printed off. Is it ok if I confirm my solo piece later?

It'll be odd - I'll be teacherless, and off to uni the week after ohmy.gif!

I *MIGHT* possibly have to ration the small-group items - we'll definitely only have time for six of them in the concert, and two people have already asked for two slots each (involving different people - so that means that four slots are taken already!).

This'll be OK if not many more want to do small-group things, BUT if lots more want to I may have to restrict it to only one of those items per person, I'm afraid.... sad.gif

That's OK, Jo. I'll understand if that happens. How to choose, though... unsure.gif

Similarly, that's OK with me. I put a big IF on one of those items anyway...

1 x solo
1 x duet with APF
and then choir and grand ensemble

Oh, and because hillyb can't go, Sbhoa is accompanying me (but this is instead of her solo, if you get me)

(will send form asap) smile.gif

I've sent my form and cheque off today, jo, so you should get it tomorrow all being well. I've applied for a solo and also an ensemble - except I haven't got anyone to play with yet biggrin.gif if any other clarinettists would like to play with me, would they please email or PM me rolleyes.gif I've asked June Emerson to bring some duo/trio/quartet music to the Leeds concert and I'm hoping there'll be something suitable there for an ensemble of mixed abilities.
