We are after all not going to perform at the Arts at Sussex music festival, as there is a strong competitive element to the event, and I didn’t mean for the little orchestra to be enrolled into any competitions at this early stage.
Competing this early in the development of an ensemble puts undue stress on the players as they struggle against their level of technique to try and sound better than is currently possible for the group.
We will focus our efforts on the upcoming studio concert in October/November, and relax about competitions.
See you all at rehearsal! 🙂
