Sheila Joynes's Musical Diary

Worcester Youth Music String Course 2005


Well, it was wonderful – it always is!! But tiring and, as predicted, I didn’t get much sleep on Saturday night. I was still patrolling the corridor at 1am and then again at 5.15am!

They played all sorts of music, some far too easy so they could just enjoy playing together, some far too hard to stretch the good players. The kids were great – staff jokes were fun – wouldn’t miss it for the world!

Next year’s course is June 23rd to 25th. If you want more information about it or if I can help you enjoy your music in any way, please get in touch.

Here’s a little piece of video. There were two orchestras – Amarillo, the older one, Crazy Frog the younger – and the music was arranged by Rob Marshall. He and Josie Evans were conducting both groups – in tandem! Bear in mind when listening to this that the youngest kids were only 7 and the “recording” was done on my little hand-held camera!
