Orchestra awaydays

 

 Abingworth Hall

 

The orchestra held a very successful weekend away this year on February 23 and 24 at Abingworth Hall, a delightful HF Holidays hotel at Thakeham, East Sussex at the foot of the South Downs (see pictures in our Photo Gallery).  We spent the weekend playing through lots of music (a new composition by a Canadian composer, Colleen Muriel, Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony, Holst's St Paul's Suite for Strings, various decets and octets for winds), and generally enjoying a weekend in the country.

 

These awaydays have been a highlight of the orchestra calendar since the beginning.  Members play as an orchestra as well as in small ensembles and spend social time together.  In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 the venue was Headley Park, a pleasant hotel in extensive grounds near Farnham in Hampshire.  In 2015 the awayday moved to Chorleywood and then to Abingworth Hall in 2016.
