Newsletter - March 2017

The orchestra is hard at work again preparing for our next concert, which is on Saturday 8th April at St Paul’s Church Chichester at 7.30 p.m.

The programme comprises both of Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suites and Brahms’ 3rd Symphony, so there will be lots of familiar music. Mark Harrt-Palmer is back conducting again this term. Lis Peskett (our usual Leader) won’t be with us for this concert, but we are delighted that Helena Moore, who played with us in our last concert, has agreed to lead. Helena is currently studying at Trinity Laban doing a postgraduate diploma studying with Clare Thompson.

Tickets are now on sale, and the poster can be viewed and downloaded here. As usual you can queue on the night either to buy or pick up your tickets. This time you can also buy your tickets from Chichester Office Supplies who are at 4 Crane Street Chichester. We are very grateful to them for this and hope you will find it convenient to be able to pick up your tickets before the concert.

As ever do get in touch if you would like to join the orchestra, or be an ‘extra’ from time to time. We have welcomed 2 new members this term, and are always pleased to see new faces. Rehearsals are 7.30 - 9.30 on Tuesday evenings in Chichester. We work hard but our catering team also ensures we are kept suitably refreshed and refuelled.

I look forward to seeing you on April 8th.
