Music Appreciation 1
You are very welcome to join our Music Group which meets on alternate Friday afternoons, starting at 2.15pm in the Camelot Room in Milborne Port, where there is plenty of free parking.
The afternoon is divided into 4 parts;
1) Members own choice of music brought in on CDs. People can offer some background information if they wish.
2) Tea or coffee plus chocolate biscuits and socialising.
3) Either a short set piece of music chosen by us, or more of the group's choices.
4) At 4.00pm, there is the option of staying to listen to a complete piece of classical music, maybe a symphony or a concerto, which finishes somewhere between 4.30pm and 5 o'clock.
Those who wish to leave at 4.00pm do so.
There are normally six sessions each term and the present fee of £4 covers hall hire and refreshments. There are three General sessions, where our short set piece is played before 4 o'clock. There are also three Themed sessions. The programme for Summer 2019 is below as an example.
