About the group

1. Our Ensemble has increased in numbers! This means that we will
reluctantly have to leave our winter practice quarters – St. Edmund’s
Church, Maids Moreton – as it has become too small for us.  We will in
future be practising in Padbury Village Hall on alternate Wednesdays. If
you would like to join, please let us know before hand and we can give you precise instructions and directions on how to get there.

2. We will be hosting an all day workshop for the Ensemble on Saturday, the 21st of March, again in Padbury Village Hall – from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.
Non-members are welcome to attend if we have space – again, let us know beforehand, so that we can be sure about numbers.

We have started work on a range of music in relatively easy arrangements, from Handel, Tchaikovsky and Bruckner to folk songs and film or TV theme tunes with the aim of improving our ensemble skills. Most pieces are short but as we develop as a band we are looking to increase the length and depth of our repertoire.

We have performed in several informal venues over the past year and are hoping to play in May at the Farmers’ Market in Winslow. We welcome all musicians, especially string players and lower brass.
