String em up ensemble

I’ve joined a great string group, which certainly gives my (lack of) violin  playing skills a work out. The ‘String-’em-up Ensemble’ are all adult late starters on string instruments, although several of us are reasonably competent on various wind instruments. I wrote them a string quartet initially, but was then invited to play. I really admire, and enjoy writing for committed amateur musicians.

    I’ve had quite a productive Autumn so far – ‘Toccata’ my piano duet, ‘Panic at the North Pole’ – a Christmas play with songs, for children, I’ve finished the music for the Dorset Ghost Story, Finished ‘Dave the Musical Caveman’ & recorded it ready for the Berrymede kids next term, made quite a good start on ‘Q the Music’ our flashmob idea for Dartington next year  several other bits & pieces. I find it’s better to keep writing , otherwise I work very much slower when I start again.
