Bank Holiday Monday and the musicians never rest so come and join us at Witham Friary Summer Fair for Tangos with Seona Chapman (violin) and Pete Rosser (accordion) and the fabulous Frome Street Band from 2pm Monday 30th August.
It's an old New Year by now but we've got here at last. We've had huge snow down here in Witham Friary, a couple of missed rehearsals and lots of re-arranging later we've just finished playing through a huge heap of new repertoire. We've added a few twentieth century classics: Over the Rainbow, Sweet Dreams are Made of This, Maria (from West Side Story), A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, La Cumparsita and lots more. We're also working on some brilliant Baroque treasures: Rejoice Greatly and the Hallelujah Chorus (both from Handel's Messiah) and, inspired by Radio Three's Purcell Weekend, we're enjoying his Strike the Viol and Sound the Trumpet.
Coming soon - in a fantastic arrangement for quartet - Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and Seona's hard at work on a West Side Story Suite.
Happy New Year everyone, good luck with all your plans, dreams, hopes and resolutions!
