To promote the classical guitar in the community

First guitar society meeting for 2016

Tomorrow, Sunday, 6th March at 4.15

We have our first guitar society meeting for 2016.

It would be really great to see you there.

First we will have our all welcome guitar ensemble.
Want to improve your guitar playing AND have fun! Take part in the guitar ensemble.

Owen has been really really busy and is still getting our on-line music for the music group organised – but we do have one piece which was sent out with the main newsletter for this month. Jane will bring copies of more music for our guiatr ensemble play-in. Easy to play.! This is such a great part of our meetings and would be great to have you join us even just for one or two pieces for a start.

Next we will have the members playing section.
If you have a solo or ensemble piece to play we would love to hear it.
If you have a duo and you need someone to play the other part – any of the experienced players would be happy to play with you.
Teachers – bring your students to play solos or ensembles.
I personally have been really busy recently – but I will try and find something to play!

Everyone welcome to play or just listen.

Finally there will be our feature spot for the meeting.

This month with warmest thanks to Jane Curry and her students,, we have some students from the School of Music guitar program who are preparing for a concert next week. They will perform these same pieces for us.

At the moment I have the following list so far:
1. Royden Smith
Sonata in D Major – Santiago de Murcia

2. Amber Madriaga

Lute Suite BWV 1006a   

Minuet 1 & 2                –  J.S Bach (1685 – 1750)

Afternoon tea.
There will also be warm and cold drinks and biscuits during the meeting.
So I commend you – come and enjoy a small corner of beauty in the world  – the Wellington Classical Guitar Society, first Sunday of each month.

Hope to see you tomorrow at Crossways , 6 Roxburgh Street, Mt Victoria..
