    Everyone played so beautifully last night. It was a pleasure making music with you. Next week we will review the Pachelbel Canon and Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring and start work on:
    #18 Bach Wachet Auf
    #10,11,12,13 pieces from Handel's Water Music
    These pieces are all in Lynne Latham's Weddings for Two.

    Yes, there will be viola music for you and your very advanced musical skills will be quite welcome. We are working on some Latham 2 part pieces, particularly the Pachelbel Kanon. The viola part in this arrangement is pretty substantial, not like the usual repetitious filler.

    I would really like to come and play viola - I'm desperate to work on my viola skills! Will there be music for me?

    This coming Tuesday in Cantabile we are going to take apart the Pachelbel Canon and put it back together to work on ensemble skills. It's all about rhythm. (No problem if you can't get all the notes. Every phrase of the piece is built on the same eight chords. You can choose to play the easier phrases and you will still fit in.)
