There are a few slots available for small ensembles. Please contact me about participation fee where some of the ensemble are not intending to play solo.
Cost for audience, limited to close friends, family and teachers of performers is £4.
If you are an adult learner who doesn't feel ready to perform but would like to come to see what it's all about please contact me.
As there are a limited number of performing slots available in order to keep the concert to a reasonable length it is advisable to book early by email. 
Once fully subscribed there will be a waiting list.
Choice of repertoire may be notified up to the closing date though if you need an accompanist sooner is better. 
When choosing what to play please bear in mind that the time for rehearsing with your volunteer accompanist on the day may be restricted to about 10 minutes. We are mostly very lucky in having some experienced accompanists but this can vary from year to year. Sometimes it may not be possible to accommodate  a difficult accompaniment and you may need to rethink.
NB Small offspring will only be allowed at the discretion of the organisers.
Any surplus will be donated to Beanstalk (formerly Volunteer Reading Help) Greater Manchester Branch.
If anyone is prepared to help out with accompaniments please email me. Anyone performing as an accompanist only is not required to pay attendance fee.
We usually go for a meal after the event. please let me know by the closing date if you are interested so that I can make provisional booking.

Comments from past participants:
“The whole idea is terrific, I enjoyed myself. I thought all the participants did really well particularly when there had to be a restart”.

”Well organised - very friendly group - the whole thing is very worthwhile.”

"My daughter was really impressed about how supportive everyone was to each other and how important music was to the adults. For a 14 year old who has always played music it was a very different dimension."
