December 2013 Concert
Tchaikovsky - Elegy for String Orchestra
Dvorak - Cello Concerto
Shostakovich - Symphony No 5
As we have so few rehearsals for this concert, familiarity with the music will be absolutely paramount, as well as punctual attendance.
You can fill them in on a computer and email them to us, or print them out and hand them in at rehearsal. Or, in extremis, you can request a paper copy.
We would advise you not to give too high or low scores to begin with, to allow room for expansion in either direction. You will be able to revise your scores at any point upto the end of the concert in July 2014.

Rehearsal venue and times hide
The usual rehearsal venue is St Nicholas Church Hall, Summer Road, Thames Ditton KT7 0QQ (5 minutes walk from Thames Ditton station) unless otherwise indicated.
Rehearsals are from 19:30 (for 19:45 start) to 22:00.
If arriving by train, then the train leaving Waterloo at 19:06 and arriving at Thames Ditton at 19:39 is just about acceptable (it will take you 5 minutes at a brisk walk). Note that the post code is located on the wrong side of Summer Road — and we are in the Church Hall, not the Church.
Thames Ditton station is bottom left, Church Hall is under the Alto Clef near the top right. Coming from the station, you should go down Speer Road, then turn right into Church Walk, and keep left when you get to Ashley Road after 50 yards. Turn left when you get to Church Lane.
If driving, approach from the Summer Road side; there is a car park in front of the hall.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can't make a rehearsal.
