Classical Music Appreciation

When people ask about joining the Music Group, they sometimes seem a little apprehensive and claim to 'know very little about music'. But our aim is not to go into technical details – just to enjoy listening to music, some of which may be familiar and some quite new to us. We started by voting for our favourite composers (and the not so favourite!), and this worked very well, as everyone had an opportunity to present the composers they like and perhaps say a few words about them. As an alternative we have a whole session on one composer so as to get to know him (or her) a little better.

We have listened to some beautiful music by Bach and Handel, Grieg, Shostakovich, Puccini and Mahler, and have had a light-hearted quiz trying to guess the animals linked to particular pieces of music.

We currently have 16 to 18 members at each session, but there is still room for more, and you would be very welcome. We meet on the 4th Monday of each month at the Rest Centre, Kingsbridge, next door to Quay House, from 2 – 4 pm.
