U3A Music Appreciation Group

by Angela - 22:26 on 05 October 2015

 

U3A music group-

met on the 26th –september-and out theme was “Dance”.

We thought is an interesting selection-

We started with Bolero-Ravel-followed by medieval French dances by P retorious

Then some of Ally Bain Scottish dances.

Malcolm Arnold next-more Scottish dances-and Tahiti Trot-Shostokovitch.

Satie dances-came next and then The 3 cornered Hat-de Falla-followed by a minuet –Haydon-some Cotswold Morris tunes-by a group-Spiers and Boden.

Then we listened to a chaconne fron Dido and Aenaes-Purcell. Strauss came nest-the Dance of the 7 veils-and Nat King Cole-Unforgettable.

A tea break was then enjoyed with some of Glenys”s delicious home made goodies.

To finish ,we listened to-Pavanne by Morton Gould and Shostokovitch-Cheryomushki,and some French Canadian step dances.

In addition-Holst-Brook Green suite and a tango by Shostokovitch (again).

Our next get together is  30th October-at the O”Sheas in Stromness-when the theme will be-“Love”.

All welcome .
