Coming up this Sunday 18th October... we'll be playing at Marston House from 2pm, a couple of sets of our usual mixture and a special one-off performance with Pee Wee Ellis. All part of a Grand Tea Party and Charity Auction to raise funds for the Premature Baby Unit at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. Tickets on the door I think!
An Easter treat for us, we're getting together at the weekend to rehearse and record a new selection of music for our website. Look out for our brand new LISTEN page in the next couple of weeks. Also we have a host of engagements in the next few weeks so we're rehearsing lots of new repertoire including arrangements of: The Promise by Tracy Chapman and The Raiders' March from Indiana Jones; alongside classic favourites: Elgar's Serenade for Strings and Chanson de Matin and Handel's Hornpipe from the Water Music.
Look out for two Primavera regulars, Seona Chapman and Andrea Green, moonlighting with local quartet The Maggio in a free lunchtime concert at Wells Cathedral. Tuesday 7th April, 12 noon, in the Lady Chapel. The concert is part of the Music and Silence Series. Programme includes: Borodin String Quartet No 2 and two traditional melodies, She Moves Through the Fair and The Day Dawn, arranged by Seona. A MUST SEE!
We've been very busy recently with rehearsals, a spring clean of our sheet music cupboard and some great music-making principally with the good folk at Kingsdown Golf Club who hired us for their wonderful Valentine's dinner. The quartet sounds great and we're in trim for a busy run of performances coming up.
We're just warming up for our next big series of events: wedding fairs at the Ammerdown Centre and Orchardleigh. Come and hear us play at Ammerdown on 4th Jan 12 - 4pm and at Orchardleigh on 25th Jan also from 12 - 4pm. We'd love to see you, have a chat, cup of tea, etc!
