Annual String Workshop, Saturday Afternoon 12th June 2021

Having missed last year, we are delighted to be able to invite members and friends of Crowthorne Symphony Orchestra to join us for an afternoon of music making in our annual String Workshop!

We will be playing:
Holst - St Paul's Suite
Mendelssohn - String Symphony No. 3 in E Minor

This workshop will be conducted under the rules of Stage 3 of the Government's roadmap out of lockdown, therefore we have a maximum of 24 places available, and the usual social distancing rules will apply. Tickets are £10, and must be purchased in advance via Ticket Tailor (cake will be provided as part of the workshop ticket price, but please bring your own drinks). The workshop will be at our usual venue Oaklands Junior School, Butler Road, Crowthorne, RG45 6QZ.

For more information on how we're making the workshop Covid-safe, please see below.
