The Nottingham Youth Band of MfE were looking forward to entertaining the crowd last Saturday in Beeston. Sadly rain stopped play of any kind. Another time guys. Thanks for turning out on such a grey day.
THIS weekend, however, there is hope of sunshine. Why not hop over to Sudbury Hall on Sunday and hear MfE’s wonderful East Midlands Youth String Orchestra, directed by Richard Howarth? They will be entertaining visitors to this National Trust property in 2 or 3 slots between 2.30pm and 5pm. Their programme includes works by Handel, Tchaikovsky, Ellerby, Vaughan Williams, Meyer and Biber. The last composer’s work, Battalia 9, brought great amusement and enjoyment to the audience at the Summer Celebration a couple of weeks ago. Never mind comb and paper, listen to cello and 80gsm A4 plain!
