…and welcome to a newsletter with a difference.
Not so much about the people who make the music,
or the music itself,
but about some things that make music –
some very old things…
and a request for help.
We will be adding a few medieval instruments
to the orchestral line-up for our
“Christmas Around the World” concerts.
These will add some seldom-heard sounds
to what promises to be our most interesting
Christmas performance yet.
(More details about the programme in early December,
but stand by for a fun and awe filled 90 minutes
of Carpe Musicam! musical treats.)
Cellist, Sue Fawcett,
who is also something of an authority on
will be giving an olde-worlde flavour
to some items with her
Pictures for reference only – actual instruments differ from illustration.
It is not often that one gets to see a live
Crumhornist or Hammered Dulcimerist
(the instrument is hammered, not the player)
at a Garden Route event.
Getting a clear view of the action can be a problem
for audience members who are not in the front few rows. It has been mentioned on several occasions that the orchestra is not very visible – seated as they are
mainly on the same level as the audience.
To this end we have been decided to provide
a large-screen projection of the on-stage goings-on.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship
and enthusiastic support of Baasraak Productions,
we now have the use of their
digital projector, cameras and operators
for our concerts.
Please spread the word
about Carpe Musicam! wherever you go.
The orchestra and choir work very hard
to achieve their high standard of performance
as unique treasures of the Garden Route
deserve to be appreciated and enjoyed
by as wide an audience
A ticket to one of our performances costs a little more than a slice of cake and a cup of coffee –
and the tingle of enjoyment will linger much longer…
Tickets are available for cash at the door,
or online at:
Book early to avoid disappointment.
