ensemble meetings rehearsals

Ensemble Practice!

As the society will not be having a regular meeting on the first Sunday in December (due to Christmas dinner) the society will instead be hosting an ensemble practice day instead.

Some music has been circulated amongst society members, chosen for a mixed ability group, and the intention of this first ensemble practice will most likely be to decide who should take which parts, and which pieces are suitable for performance.

If you are a CGSNI ensemble member, or even if you are just interested in joining the ensemble or listening in, please do come to the Ulster College of Music, Windsor Avenue, Belfast for 2.30pm on Sunday 2nd December. If you haven’t got the music yet you can let the committee know by emailing:

secretary <dot> cgsni <at> gmail <dot> com

(Replace the words in <> with the relevant punctuation).

Hope to see you there!

This month’s meeting will focus on musicality, and members will be encouraged to play relatively simple pieces.
