York Music Education CIC – Millthorpe School
Welcome to the second event in the York Beethoven Project, sponsored by www.inc-dot.com.
The Project was conceived in 2022 after talking to a number for friends and colleagues in rehearsal rooms and theatre pits around the area who showed support and enthusiasm to take part. This was realised by the fabulous take up we have had for this first event in September 2023.
The aim is to rehearse and perform all of Beethoven’s Symphonies with local musicians in local venues. If all goes to plan, we should do 2 or 3 per year, completing the cycle in 2027 – Beethoven’s 200th anniversary.
Today, we welcome players from across York as well as Harrogate, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and Sussex. Many are regular members of local ensembles, some are full-time or retired musicians, and some are getting back into things after a year or two of not playing. You are all very welcome and we hope that you have a great day of music making.
