London Gypsy Orchestra Musicians
Dear Gypsy Music lovers - and players,
...or those who would like
to play it !
The London Gypsy Orchestra is
currently looking for saxophonists, double bassists and as usual cellists. Also
viola would be welcome.
As you know, we
are an amateur group, but some professionals also feel the enthusiasm to play
with us. The level reaches from grade 4 players all the through to semi
professional and professional players. It is more important you have confidence
and enthusiasm to play rather than play virtuoso. However, if you are an
advanced or virtuoso player, there is the opportunity for solo and improvisation
commitment, and your input and practice in-between sessions. We rehearse at
Russel Square Thursday evenings from 7 or 7.30 until 9.30pm. Sometimes there are
gigs on the weekend, where a certain amount of flexibility is needed (dates
always known well in advance).
Membership fee: There is a termly fee to
maintain the orchestra. It's £50, or £40 for students, and £30 for SOAS
If you are interested or want more info, please get back to me
Thanks all, hope to hear from you soon!
