Mixed Wind/string Ensemble Music Ensemble
Thinking about dusting off your old musical instrument?
Or perhaps you have recently taken up playing?
If so, you might like to join us in a new musical  venture, starting in September.
We hope to set up a mixed wind/brass and string ensemble for
orchestral instruments, which will play  a variety of music
from classical to popular.
What we play will, of course, depend on who comes,
what sort of music you enjoy and your level of experience.
Our first meeting will take place at 34 Highlands Rd, Buckingham, MK18 1PL
on Wednesday 27th September at 2.30.All players welcome!

Reading Latin
Perhaps you already know quite a bit of Latin and would
like to tackle the literature straightaway?
Or even have a go at some ‘Unseens’?
It is hoped to start a new Group called ‘Reading Latin’
to enable you to do this. What are we going to read?
That is up to you, we will decide when we get together.
Sessions could be weekly or fortnightly in ‘terms’

Greek for Beginners
Would you like to learn Classical Greek? It is hoped to start a new
beginners’ group to enable you to read Greek Literature such as Homer,
Sophocles, Thucydides or even Plato. Note that this is Classical Greek, not
New Testament Greek; New Testament Greek classes are already in progress,
but not with the U3A.
The book that we shall use will be Wilding ‘Greek for Beginners’ or,
depending on the numbers, this may be my own course.
It is intended to hold the classes weekly with a break for ‘terms’.

Are you interested in forming a new calligraphy group?
Have you done it before?
Could you teach others?
Are you interested in giving it a try?
We would learn how to write with dip pens
and then hopefully produce cards, wall hanging etc.
If so please contact me and I will take it forward.
There is already someone willing to be the Co-ordinator,
so we just need people and a venue!
