NEXT EVENT

23rd Sep 2017 - Early Music at Discoed - Handel

Upper House - Discoed, Presteigne, Powys

I am excited to have the opportunity to play timpani for the first time ever during this workshop. 

Enquiries: 07989 091949  DiecoedEarlyMusic@BTConnect.com

 

About the event:

 

This year's workshop celebrates the joyous music of Handel. Led by our Musical Director, David Hatcher with Philip Thorby, both well known for their scholarly and musical insights into historical performance, we shall study Handel's settings of the Te Deum.
There are some good solos for the singers and we shall need orchestral string players, oboists, bassoonists, trumpeters, keyboard players - and a timpanist, but sadly no recorders or viols this year.

Friday's Concert 'Sonatas of Handel's London' will be given by Philip and David with Sharon LIndo (violin) and Hilary Norris (harpshichord).

For the Saturday concert we are delighted to welcome the renowned recorder ensemble Fontanella on their first visit to Discoed . Their programme 'Woods so Wild', will include William Byrd's setting of the famous ditty of that name and theirs will be an evening of music inspired by the sights and senses and sounds of nature - a veritable feast of feathery frottole and leafy madrigals!

Theatr Brycheiniog - Brecon, Powys

Beat It will deliver a short talk/taster session to U3A in Brecon, to promote our work locally.  

About the organisation:

Brecon U3A meets weekly on a Thursday, during "term time", at Theatr Brycheiniog, Canal Wharf, Brecon, LD3 7EW for a programme of lectures, talks, workshops, outings and demonstrations. Some of these are led by members and some by visiting speakers.

The morning session starts at 10.30am with coffee available from 10am in the gallery on the first floor. The travel desk and notice boards are on display in the gallery before and after the morning lecture. The afternoon sessions start at 1.15pm and 2.30pm.

Membership costs £20 per year, there is a £1 charge for attendance at any or all of the Thursday sessions.

An informal "Sandwich Club" meets in the bar upstairs, where members bring their own packed lunches and chat or even discuss the morning lecture!

"The Third Age" is the time after the first age of childhood and the second of work and family.

The University of the Third Age started in France in 1972 and in Britain in 1982. U3As are self help, self managed, lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, it provides opportunities for members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups, not for qualifications but for fun. There are around 600 groups in Britain. Each U3A is independent, self funding and governing, organising its own programme to suit the wishes and interests of its members. All U3As are affiliated to The Third Age Trust. Brecon U3A is one of a network covering South Wales and Severnside. It is a registered charity No. 1074288.
