Classical Music Appreciation 1

Convenor: Philip EastwoodVacancies
Date: First Thursday of the month No waiting list
Time: 10am to 12 noon
Venue: Friends Meeting House, Beccles
Sister Group: Classical Music Appreciation 2

The purpose of the group is to listen to a wide variety of recorded classical music followed by a discussion. Members are encouraged to present music of their choice but it is not compulsory. Our aim is to enjoy and expand our listening experience.

We hope to attend live music events and transmitted opera and ballet performances at the Marina Lowestoft and the Fisher Theatre Bungay.

We are now beginning our third year. We average 8-10 people each time. There is a general plan for the session: a theme with a planned piece of music, about 15-25 minutes long, together with contributions from members.[We also have a coffee/tea break.]

Over the years we have welcomed Spring with Respighi, enjoyed Summer in Knoxville 1915 [Barber] and explored the Mendelssohns.Also Marching & Waltzing;Horns & Trumpets [Janacek];Folksong, and celebrated Christmas with Handel ,& Vivaldi.Recently we heard about Havergal Brian from a visiting speaker.

Anyone interested can make contact via the website, or come along first Thursday of the month 10.00a.m.
