The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra has its autumn 2019 rehearsal workshop on Sunday 29th September when we will be tackling Mahler's Totenfeier and Suk's Scherzo Fantastique.
Mahler’s Totenfeier is a tone poem which he later reworked to became, after some revisions, the 1st movement of his 2nd symphony. Suk’s Scherzo Fantastique is a great piece to get to know from a very underrated composer. This is a really good opportunity for amateur musicians to experience playing music that they will rarely have come across before. These workshops are fun, playing music without the stress of needing to reach concert standard. We normally play through the piece at the end of the day but we purposefully do not invite an audience – this is a day for our enjoyment of playing music as an orchestra. Our conductor for the day is Matt Andrews and our leader will be Steve Calder.
The workshop is just for the day in Nayland Village Hall from 10 am until about 4:45 pm. We provide light refreshments during the day, players need to bring their own lunch and we add a polypin of real ale into the mix - because we think playing music should be fun.
If you are a string player and would like to come to this event then please contact Hilary on firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 07802 793768. If you want to turn up on the day that is fine but we do suggest you make contact first. We have nearly got a full complement of wind and brass players for this event but please do make contact if you are interested in coming to the event.
