November News

As suspected the end of this term has become rather chaotic and there will need to be a change to one of our rehearsals.

So here goes:

Thursday 6th November 19:00

Thursday 20th November 19:00

Friday 12th December 19:00 – this replaces the session on the 3rd December

Saturday 13th December – CtK Christmas Fair  

I assume we will play from 10:00 – 12:00 (with tea and cake break!!) as in previous years, however this has not yet been confirmed.


Thursday 18th December – Festive Flutes and Friends 19:00 for 19:30 start

We are being joined by my duo partner Julia Hammersley (Harp) and some of her pupils for this concert – please bring an audience!

Autumn Rehearsals

Our rehearsals will now be held fortnightly and will be longer in length 19:00 – 21:15 with a 15 minute break in the middle.  I plan to make parts available for those who would like to practise between rehearsals.
Rehearsal dates: Sept 11th, 25th, Oct 9th, 23rd, Nov 6th, 20th, Dec 4th


December Update!

Christ the King Christmas Fair – Saturday 14th December
Please arrive and be ready to play at 10:00 and we will be finished by 12:30
Dress: all black and festive hats if you like

Festive Flutes Concert – Thursday 19th December
Please arrive by 19:10 at the latest to enable us to tune
Dress: all black

If anyone is able to help set up, serve tea and coffee etc please let me know ASAP

Our final rehearsal for this term is this Friday, 13th December 2013 19:00 – 20:15.

Rehearsals for the new year are as follows:
January 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th
February 6th, 13th, 27th
March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th
April 3rd

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no rehearsal on 20th February as this is the half term holiday.

It would be extremely helpful if you could let me know in advance any rehearsals you are not able to make – it just makes it a little easier when planning what to cover!

Rehearsal Changes

As November and December are busy times of year for both the church and my rehearsal and concert diary, we need to move a couple of rehearsals.  

So, Thursday the 28th November will move to Friday 29th in the Meeting Room and Thursday 12th December will need to move to Friday 13th in the Meeting Room. Please let me know if you are/not able to make make the new times.

Thanks! :)

Calling all Flautists!!

Here is a message from Fiona of Forset Flutes…..

Hi Silverwinds – hope all is going flutingly well for you all! We're off to play at the Wales Millennium Centre in Sept and wondered whether any of you would like to come over and join us for this venture – appreciate that the bridge is expensive! We're also teaming up with our friends the Cardiff amateur Flute ensemble (Café) – we're trying to make a massive flute choir – please invite any flautists you know -The Forest Flute Choir plays Cardiff 
Wales Millennium Centre 28th September 2013

The Forest Flute Choir is teaming up with great friends Cardiff Amateur Flute Ensemble (CAFÉ) to play a lunchtime gig at WMC on Saturday 28th September 2013 and we would very much appreciate your help and support in making the largest possible flute ensemble that we can muster. All flautists are welcome to join with us in this venture, completely free of charge.
In order to facilitate this ambitious venture we will hold 4 rehearsals during July and September; it is not necessary to attend all four but we would ask that you come to at least 2 – the dates for these are as follows – SUNDAY 14TH JULY, SATURDAY 20TH JULY, SUNDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER AND SATURDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER. All participants will be given a pack of music and information during their first rehearsal.
Please pass this on to any other flautists that you know – the more the merrier!
Thank you in advance for your support,
On behalf of the Forest Flute Choir
Fiona Crawley

If anyone is interested in playing please let me know!!
