For the 2016 Mid Year Concert, the Intermezzo Strings are playing movements from the “Capriol Suite” by Peter Warlock. This work requires careful listening. Some moments are filled with beautiful harmonies, others are written to be so harsh that our teeth grind. How can we learn the difference?
Listening to a recording can help, especially if you read your part while listening. As it happens, the LYCO already has a recording of the Capriol Suite, made during the 2006 Residential Summer String Camp. You can listen to it in the RSSC 2006 Gallery.
The Piccolo Strings, Intermezzo Strings and Launceston Symphony Orchestra all resume rehearsals this week, with the first rehearsal on Friday, 6th February 2015.
Piccolo Strings and Intermezzo Strings start and finish 15 minutes later: 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm. This should ease concerns by students travelling from school.
For the complete rehearsal calendar for 2015, see the Rehearsals page.
Rehearsals remain at the City Baptist Church, 11 Frederick St, Launceston.
