Musical Instruments

Tuesday 24th May @ 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm

As you’ve seen from Ireen’s email, it’s dedicated to the fun and frolics of exploring the world of musical instruments.

This is your chance to show off your hitherto unsuspected virtuosity on the kazoo, or just to try an instrument you have always hankered after – or possibly have never even    heard of.

We’ll have a variety of examples of instruments strange and familiar in the Hall. The idea is to give any of them a try, satisfy curiosity and have fun.

Musical skill and training definitely not a prerequisite!

 

Ireen’s words:

Dear All,

We do hope both those of you with musical ability, plus those who think they have none will come through the door this Tuesday!  If you believe you belong in the latter category, don’t worry – there will be a chance to try spare instruments and to enjoy this “have a go” opportunity.   Members with musical ability will be assisting others to try things out. 

Please remember to bring with you any of your own instruments – or, perhaps, from the loft, the ancient family one you found that once belonged to a grandparent!  We’ll share any talent around and everyone can try to produce some harmonious sounds – or otherwise!  Should be fun.  Remember: percussion, brass, wind, string – all instruments welcome.

The attached photos show the Ashcroft stage at the Fairfield Halls last night.  It was filled with guitars and four talented musicians.  Unfortunately, we shan’t have those young men with us at our hall but their playing might have inspired any other COPSERs who attended the evening.  If you have a double-necked guitar, do bring it to show us.
