Spring Concert - 17th Mar 2018 'European Romantic Masterpieces with Konya Kanneh-Mason'

We are delighted that Konya Kanneh-Mason has agreed to play with us for this concert, and the piece selected is the Schumann Piano Concerto. To complement this (and provide something for instruments not used in the Concerto!) the rest of the programme comprises Borodin’s Prince Igor and Polovtsian Dances, and Wagner’s Meistersingers orchestral suite. Music will be made available at the start of rehearsals on 4th December, and the concert will be at St Andrews C of E Church, 1 Chestnut Grove, Nottingham NG3 5AD



Rehearsals and Membership Info

Rehearsals are held at the Sherwood Rise site of the Djanogly City Academy, NG7 7AR (See map) on Monday evenings starting at 7.00 pm, but if you are able to arrive a few minutes early to help put out chairs, that is really helpful. We have a refreshment break at 'half time' and 3 members of the Orchestra are rostered each week to provide this:- one to set up before the practice starts; a second to boil the kettles then, with the third, to serve the refreshments and tidy away afterwards. Please check the Rota to see when you are scheduled. Rehearsals finish at 9.15 pm so we can clear away by 9.30.

Subs are currently £80 per year, and should be paid by standing order - either annually in January, or quarterly in November, February, May and August. Please contact the treasurer, Roger Kilby, for standing order information. The one exception to this is that full-time student membership is free - so don't forget to tell Roger if you already are (or if you become) a student!
