We did encounter an unexpected problem in rehearsals on the electric harps though.... Ellie's harp kept making a lot of 'interference' type noise and we couldn't work out what the problem was. It turned out that her rubber soled shoes were creating lots of static electricity which was being picked up by the harp. Shoes off = problem solved!
We were pleased to have composer Paul Patterson in attendence again. Paul was very pleased with our performance of his piece Avian Arabesques and said that our ensemble playing in the very tricky last movement of the piece was extremely tight which pleased us immensely!
A month's break now before we come back for the next round of concerts in May, June and July.
