The first rehearsal of the Sym-Phonic Waves Orchestra was a fantastic success. We started with a 30minute tutti session, joined by the fantastic players from the Con Tempo Quartet, and then the group broke into sections, to work individually with the members of the quartet.
After a short lunch break, it was back to work in a tutti rehearsal with me. It was great to work on The Capriol Suite and start work on the Holberg Suite.
We spent a lot of time really learning to listen to each other, listening out for which section had the melody, who was accompanying, how together we were, always thinking critically and figuring out how we could make it better. Thanks to all of you for your engagement with the rehearsal.
I'm looking forward to building on these skills at our next rehearsal on 2nd April!
I'm looking forward to building on these skills in the next rehearsal - I hope you have all been practising!!!
