The UNIVERSITY ORCHESTRA always welcomes new players. Why not come and join us. We're currently rehearsing Saint-Saëns' wonderful Organ Symphony (no.3) for our forthcoming concert at St Saviour’s Church in Guildford on Saturday 12 March 2016. We're also performing Poulenc's Gloria with the University Choir.
The Orchestra, conducted by Russell Keable (catch him on BBC Radio 3 this week), is open to ALL University students and staff.
If you play an orchestral instrument (in particular violin, viola or horn) to grade 8 standard and would like to be involved, you would receive a warm welcome. Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings at 6.30pm in PATS.
We're always keen to welcome new singers to the UNIVERSITY CHOIR too. If you love singing, are able to read music and think you might enjoy practising with a buzzing enthusiastic bunch of choristers come and join us on Wednesday evenings 6-8pm in PATS.
For further details please email Russell Keable at firstname.lastname@example.org

TV Studio Experience Day:
On Wednesday 18th November we welcomed Year 10 students from Woking to try their hands at reporting the lunchtime news. Students worked with Sara David, Managing Editor of BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey, to research the day’s top stories and script a fifteen minute broadcast. The remaining students were given an intensive course in camera operation, sound, graphics and vision mixing by the University’s TV Studio engineers Alan Haigh and Brian Johnson, and assisted by Ollie Bowring and Matt Cooke, who are both studying for a degree in Music and Sound Recording. At the end of the day the Year 10 students came together to present and record the programme with remarkable independence and precision.
The TV Studio team will continue to collaborate with the Department of Widening Participation and Outreach to give more local students the opportunity to experience behind the scenes of television production.
The Spring/Summer Arts Calendars are hot off the press and will be available to pick up or delivered to your doorstep if requested! So keep an eye out, the cover can be seen below!
Happy New Year to you all!
