It is hoped to restart this ensemble in Spring 2022! Join the Harmonia mailing list to keep up to date with plans!
Harmonia Youth Band rehearses on occasional Sundays during term-time. The group is open to woodwind players of grade 0-5 and parts are hand-picked for each player to ensure the right level of challenge. It's open to children and adults.
The first session took place during the summer term 2019 and was a great success with performances of both classical and jazzier pieces. The second session in December 2019 was our first with adults invited and we were delighted to have four parents join us. We're now up to 18 players! We managed to get our last session in during early March 2020, but have not met in real life since then.
It is hoped to run a session each half-term so that Harmonia woodwind pupils, and other early grades players can get together and learn band skills, understand more about other instruments and improve their sight-reading.
Woodwind players of grade 0-5 are welcome to attend the Harmonia Band Spring workshops. We do different music at each, so you can sign up for as many as you like, or just one. Adults are also welcome to attend, even if of a higher grade!
Workshops have previously been held at Coton Village Hall (map is on website calendar). Prior booking is essential as I often have to write parts for individual players!
Cost: Harmonia members (woodwind pupils, member of Harmonia Youth Singers or Harmonia African Drummers) £10 per workshop. Parents of Harmonia Members are FREE! Siblings of Harmonia members are chargeable at the same rate as Harmonia members. Non-Harmonia members £15 per workshop (children AND adults)
BRING: your instrument, a music stand if you have one, and an instrument stand if you have one. It would be helpful to know how many people can bring their own stand so I know how many more I need to find!
