U3A Music group , latest collection
Our theme this month was " Performers or Items performed here in Orkney"-
And what an interesting selection it proved to be-we listened to such a wide variety-and we had anecdotes to go along with the theme-
I include some of the items we listened to-
Pergolesi-Stabat Mater-Floregium-who have performed here quite a few occasions-
Three Fishers-by Orkney"s very own Fara,
Evelyn Glennie played her own composition--A little prayer-she had played here when she was just becoming known and was very young-
Peter Maxwell Davies was represented by a few pieces-
Fairwell to Stromness,Courante,Start Point,
Then we had Tom Mc Conville-Tommy on the Bridge-Barbara Grieve -Partons in his Creel-
Purcell"s The Tempest-THe Westminster Walz-Robert Farnum.
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra -Mozart Requiem - and more----
Our Next meeting is on the 7th November in Stromness-at the O,Sheas-at 10-30 -The theme to be announced!
We welcome any one who would like to join us-
It is fun sorting through one"s collection of vinyl or C.D."s to find something to fit the theme-sometimes turning up something that we had forgotten that we had-!
