Welcome to more new players!

The MCO are very pleased to have two new players join us during November: another excellent clarinettist, Becky, and Hattie as our second cello. We hope you enjoy playing with us.

Welcome to MCO

The orchestra have been very pleased to welcome three new players recently, Lucy on flute, Louisa on cello and Clare on viola.

If you are a string or brass player and are free on Monday evenings, please contact MCO via the website.

It is good for our ‘well being’ to make music together, so come and join us!

A lovely reminder of what a beautiful town we live in, to cheer us up in these disappointing times!

November’s Newsletter

This is a sad little poem from our flautist Stuart.

 When I heard the news I could have cried
   'cause I've always tried
   To be as good as I can be
   So how am I suddenly
   Number One Public Enemy?
   When all that I do is play a tune
   On my flute which must now be mute
   Say scientist in the uni at Bute, USA.

   Who would have thought
   That I would be caught
    By researchers who sought
    To find the most dangerous instrument
    In these Covid 19 times.
    But there is no denying
    A violin wins hands down
    As there is no air
    Blowing around.

    So the thrill of my heart
    Even two meters apart
    Maybe more deadly,
    I cannot deny it.
    No matter how well I play it.
