Mid-Northumberland

Music Appreciation

Frequency: 4th Tuesday
Time: 2.00pm
Venue: Longhirst Village Hall
Leader: Richard Firth

-----
*** For a number of years we have met at members' houses where numbers have been limited, but we have now decided to run our sessions in Longhirst Village Hall and open our meetings to all members. Come along and give us a try.***

The Music Appreciation Group aims to share the enjoyment of listening to music, whilst enhancing our knowledge and understanding of it. Although some members have technical knowledge, and some play an instrument or sing, we have been happy for anyone who appreciates music to join us. Our approach is eclectic. Classical music perhaps provides the core, but we also embrace jazz, folk, musical theatre and aspects of “world music”.
-----
A session may focus on an individual composer or performer, or a specific work, instrument or format. The aim is to provide a balanced mix of musical styles and periods. Although we have occasionally had outside speakers, usually meetings consist of presentations by our members. Sometimes we have “themed meetings” to which everyone contributes. Thus we all benefit from the different interests and specialist knowledge within the group, and make new musical discoveries.
