On Monday 17 May 2021 we made a wonderful start towards returning to a new musical normal. We had our first full orchestra rehearsal since March 2020.
Thanks to St Peter’s, we were able to rehearse in the spacious church, rather than the usual more modest parish hall on the second floor. At the appointed time, an orchestra assembled, with a full wind section, three horns, and an almost full string section. We seem to have attracted some new members over the last year.
We played through Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony, fully noticing the symbolism inherent in the title. After a few cobwebs were blown away, we began to make real music. What a superb way to spend a rainy Monday evening! Thanks KPO.
