Join us for our weekly rehearsals, led by artistic director Catherine Holbrook!
THURSDAYS 7.30-9pm GMT during term time
This term we are teaming up with our namesakes in the US, the All Seasons Orchestra of the Redwood Coast in California, with a special recording project of Tchaikovsky’s “Waltz of the Flowers”.
Our weekly ASOvirtual sessions are focussing on getting to grips with our parts for this as well as learning some chamber pieces by Mozart & Beethoven for some small group playing in person when we’re allowed!
There is no formal charge for participating in our ASOvirtual events although donations to enable our on-going programme and associated costs are very welcome.
As a guide we suggest £4 per session or £20 per half term for our ASOvirtual events for those of you who can afford it.
Our Artistic Director Catherine Holbrook leads the ASO Virtual sessions.
Catherine is a highly trained musician with a Masters Degree in Community Music as well as Bachelors Degrees in Music. Primarily a pianist and bassoonist but dabbling with range of instruments according to the winds of whim and opportunity, Catherine has a wealth of experience conducting, working and playing with musicians of all instruments and abilities.
Links for music and parts for you to download and print off or read from your tablet or computer screen during and in between ASOvirtual sessions are emailed out in advance of each session.
If you’d like to join in you will need to sign up for our mailing list so we can send you the information, details and links you need.
In 2020, the All Seasons Orchestra of the Redwood Coast in California, USA reached out to the All Seasons Orchestra in York UK, looking for players to collaborate on a virtual orchestra recording project during lockdown. A beautiful friendship was formed as the two orchestras supported each other through the trials of the pandemic. This film is the fruit of our first collaborative project: Leroy Anderson’s Sandpaper Ballet.
Please be aware that these events are open-access. Please respect people’s privacy and do not record any part of these sessions.
