Royal Wootton Bassett Orchestra Open Rehearsal Oct 12th 2019
Hadyn and Mendelssohn
Orchestral instrumental players of all standards and audience members are invited to join Royal Wootton Bassett Orchestra for their Open Rehearsal on October 12th.
The Open Rehearsal will be held in Royal Wootton Bassett Methodist Church from 11 am to 3.30 pm. This is a community event which is free to attend – no booking required!
Led by our regular Musical Director Alan MacRae, we will be playing the 1st movements of Hadyn Symphony No. 104 and Mendelssohn Symphony No. 4.
Can’t make the whole day? No problem, come along for the morning or afternoon session. Audience are welcome to the performance at 3 pm or come earlier to watch the rehearsal.
Children and young people are especially welcome. This is a great opportunity to see how an orchestra rehearses, ask questions, and perhaps even try an instrument!
Lunch will be provided for players and refreshments for all throughout the day.
The day will culminate with a performance of the two pieces at around 3pm. Open Rehearsal performances are shorter and somewhat less formal than concerts, so for new audiences and younger children they are a brilliant introduction to the full orchestral experience.
We hope you can join us.
