21st November 2020
These will be sent to you by email, shortly after you register to take part - they should only take a few days to arrive. However, all the music has been purchased from Lucks Music, and their website provides a demo score for each piece, so if you wish you could take a look at the music before deciding to register.
On the day
We will meet via Zoom, courtesy of St Agnes Late Starters Orchestra, Dublin. The link will be sent a few days before the event to those who have registered to take part. We will all follow the live conductor while we play along to the pre-recorded audio tracks. Of course you are also welcome simply to Zoom in, play in one or two pieces and just watch the rest. As you will be playing muted, no one needs to be worried!
During the event there will be opportunities for everyone to chat to players from the other countries in breakout rooms.
The music was recorded in Dublin on 19th August at St Agnes Community Centre for Music and the Arts by freelance musicians conducted by Seamus Doyle (RTÉ Concert Orchestra)
You can listen to the audio tracks here
They have been placed on YouTube so that, if need be, you can use the settings wheel on the screen to slow the music down for practice purposes.
A set of open string parts has been prepared for the Beethoven Symphony 5 Finale so that Stage 1's can join in with confidence.

On Wednesday 18th November St Agnes Late Starters Orchestra will be rehearsing the programme at 7:30 pm London time. The ZOOM link for this will be sent to those registered so that they can join that rehearsal if they wish to and can manage the time differences.
See you on the 21st November!
