Music and Language Mixer

Hi everyone, it's Helen again!

I realised it will be impossible to host such a big event in my apartment, so I have booked two proper music practice rooms where we can jam together (and with two rooms we can work on two different styles of music together).

I have re-opened RSVPs now, so people can join up if they want. There are just a few new conditions due to the change of venue:

1) This is specifically NOT allowed to be a party. The venue is for practicing music so we must respect that. If you are going to bring alcohol, be very discreet ;-)

2) As above with alcohol, probably not a good idea to leave food everywhere, so I suggest you eat before you come.

3) Bring an instrument and/or a singing voice and/or a smile!

4) Some instruments are available for hire by the venue.

5) The rooms cost 50rmb each per hour, so total cost is 400 rmb divided between us. With so many attendees, a small donation from each one should cover the cost easily.

6) We can go out after and get merry, the venue is close to Tianzifang.

---------------------------------------------------------

Hi Everyone!

I know it has been a ridiculously long time since we proposed this event and nothing has happened! We were having trouble finding a suitable venue so finally I have decided to hold it at my Apartment.

Out of respect for my neighbours, I will end this event at 10pm and we can head out to a local bar or club to continue the party. If anyone wants to leave instruments/bags at my place and pick them up on Sunday they are more than welcome to.

Look forward to seeing you and making some awesome music!

Helen

    Wouldn't It be nice
    Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
    There is a light that never goes out (I LOVE Smith, The !) For classical, anything but J.S Bach. Not that I don't like him. I just thought the great pieces of J.S Bach are for the church. :)

      Yeah I agree improvising might be way much better and funnier.

      Hi guys, thanks for your awesome offer to help. Since nearly 50 people RSVP'd (so in practice 20 or 30 people will come) I would appreciate a little help with crowd control, if you are prepared to take on the role. :-)

    out of practice bassist here, can also bring my ukulele if anyone needs an instrument

    July 12, 2013

    • Helen

      If you could bring it that would be great. I suspect a good proportion of people here are not bringing instruments. Welcome!

  • Helen

    I have closed RSVPs for this event now, because there is literally no more room in my apartment. Sorry for any disappointment, bit we are planning to have more events soon!

    July 8, 2013

  • Helen

    Hey, the number of RSVPs is going up, but some of these are from a long time ago.... Can you all do me a favour? If you are NOT attending, please change your RSVP to "not attending" so I can have a better idea of how many people to expect. Thanks!

    Sounds like a fun event! I speak a little German, practice piano occasionally - an absolutely newbie. So I don't really have anything to show off, but I'm ready to be stunned by you people.:)
