Zoom rehearsals for this term.

Hope to start rehearsing in KURC 14 April.

Repertoire for Spring 2021

Mozart Piano Concerto in Eb No 22, K482 – (soloist Michael Bevan), 26’.
Schubert Symphony – No 5, 27’. (For the Schubert RB and Peter Bullett will liaise on providing extra parts for flute 2, clarinets, brass and timps)

 Please come between 10am and 10.20, and we will aim to start at 10.30, and then with a short break at about 11.30 (no socialising!), we will finish at 12.30.

The K3AO Risk Assessment has been circulated to all members. To repeat the points set out in the Appendix: This is a simple set of rules for everyone

  1. Only attend if not aware of any Covid-19 symptoms. You are responsible for yourself.
  2. Use hand sanitizer on entering (KURC or K3AO will provide).
  3. Wear masks at all times. Optional to remove them whilst playing
  4. Social distancing to be observed at all times i.e., 2m, or 1m + face covering.
  5. Conform with KURC rules on movement. In particular, do not enter the long corridor if someone is coming the other way
  6. Use of South East corner door (behind where the drum kit usually is) for access to loos is encouraged.
  7. Bring own refreshment and hand sanitizer
  8. Bring own stand. If this is very inconvenient, a stand may be drawn from the K3AO stock by the player, wiped with an alcohol-infused wipe afterwards, and returned to stock
  9. Wind/brass players to be responsible for catching and clearing liquid from their instruments (e.g., kitchen roll/ sealable plastic container.)
  10. K3AO to supply hand sanitizer, alcohol infused wipes and disposable gloves.

If you can come, aim to be there between 10am and 10.20 so we can start playing at 10.30. We will not have a formal break, as we must not mingle.
