Play­ers in har­mony with tu­ition ses­sions

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

DOZENS of mu­si­cians of all ages came to­gether for Mac­cles­field Mu­sic Cen­tre’s sum­mer mu­sic cour­ses.

The course which ran for three weeks at Beech Hall School in Tyther­ing­ton were for play­ers of wind, brass and string in­stru­ments.

The first week was aimed at wind and brass play­ers. Play­ers learned pieces in small mixed en­sem­bles and then joined to­gether in a full band where they played mu­sic from the Doc­tor Who se­ries.

The sec­ond week was the turn of string play­ers. This in­cluded a group of seven to eightyear-olds who played as an ensem­ble for the first time.

The third and fi­nal week was for or­ches­tral play­ers which cul­mi­nated in a con­cert in the United Re­form Church singing River­song by Roger Emer- son in mony.

The con­cert also fea­tured El­gar’s Ser­e­nade for Strings, film-inspired mu­sic by Christo­pher Nor­ton and Star Trek.

This year’s full or­ches­tral piece was Smetana’s River Moldau tone poem and as an encore the or­ches­tra played The Girl from Ipanema.
