Newport Bush Orchestra Term 3, July 18, 2011

The BO is off and running again for Term 3.

Present: Helen,Simon, Chris K Chris H, Dave, Holly with baby Leonard and Hubby Simon, Kerry, Leonie, Annette, Fiona , Catherine, Simon Dew, Bruce S, Greg.

Not bad for a cold winters evening.

We looked at how to play harmony in thirds using the Black cat and Rita Bakers as tunes. We played a choice each to get the cobwebs out and relearned Gordon Lyalls Mazurka as an easy intro into the term.

A broad discussion re directions ensued and I passed on the request from my mothers nursing home for another performance as we had a great effect on the residents last time. Leonie suggested her mums establishment in Bacchus Marsh and Catherine ansd Annette knew of other homes worthy of our attention. We discussed a ball later in the year.

A lot of chat and playing in a convivial atmosphere and time shot by.

The term is 10 weeks long this time.
