This project will be in the form of two workshops to be held at the Norfolk Centre for Young Musicians, The Arc, CNS School, Eaton Road, Norwich NR4 6PP; and a final performance in Norwich (venue tbc) of Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music.
Dates are as follows:
Workshop 1 Saturday 4th February 11am – 3.30pm Bassoons and Oboes
Workshop 2 Saturday 29th April 11am – 2.30pm Bassoons and Oboes
Workshop 3 Saturday 10th June 12pm Rehearsal, 4pm Performance Bassoons, Oboes, Horns, Trumpets & Percussion
We are extremely keen to involve as many Double Reed players as possible in this project, as well as trumpets, horns and percussionists. Handel’s original score was for 24 Oboes, 12 Bassoons, a Contra bassoon, nine natural Trumpets, nine natural horns and three pairs of Kettledrums!
The workshops will be run by professional musicians from the OAE and staff from NCYM.
