    hey OAB, as you well know, I'm in the Music soc as well... but can I join this too?

    I play violin and *sing* tenor... recent gigs i've been involved in this year include Brahms requiem, Mozart requiem, Beethoven 9th, Mussorgky Night on Bare Mountain, Dvorak Serenade for Strings, Elgar Serenade for Strings, Britten Simple Symphony, Copland Appalachian Spring, Bach Brandenburg 3, Bruckner 7, Max Bruch Violin Concerto, and many more. Last weekend we did Elgar's Dream of Gerontius, which was absolutely amazing to play!

    yeah, it's amazing how much you get through being in 3 ensembles, which perform only once a term!

    I'm sure you do just as much, even more.... being a trumpeter allows you to play big band/jazz as well as classical, which is amazing for getting external gigs all the time! Have you thought about doing a bit of freelancing once you're at uni?

    and are you going to audition for ULU orchestra...

    Arrangements and compositions But yes I am still pretty rubbish on the trumpet for someone who's been playing for 11-12 years.

    I should post more here......I play the violin, recorder, bit of guitar, bass, piano, have sung in school musicals, am in local youth orchestra, which rocks. We've just played our summer concert, featuring Wagner's Meistersingers overture, Lizst's piano concerto, and Shostakovich's 5th Symphony, and we're waiting just now to hear what we'll play on tour...can't wait!

    Count me in - I play Clarinet and Saxophone and sing, and I'm trying to borrow my Wind Band's bass clarinet to try as well . I also play in a Big Band, Wind Band, 2 orchestras and sing in a choir :cool:. I also love listening to classical music in my free time.

    I guess I should join this. My main interest is in Adorno and the effects of Critical Theory (and post-Kantian aesthetics) on art music. I am currently working on a dissertation on the use of paratactical and hypotactical critique in adorno's aesthetic theory and his book on berg. In terms of music my interest lies in the early twentieth century - next year I'll be doing Robin Holloway's course on the effect of Wagner on the music up to the end of Strauss and a course on diaghilev ballets. Should be good fun.

    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to join this soc (despite the glaring 'Goth' icon on the toolbar- the liking for everything gothic- music, literature, architecture)- nevertheless, my personal favourites are Schubert, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Mozart, Handel, Strauss & Addinsell (esp. Warschauer Konzert). I can be found among the crowd during the concerts of Oxford Chamber Orchestra, Oxford City Orchestra, Schola Cantorum or listening to recitals at Magdalen chapel.

    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to join this society. I play piano and violin and love classical music. In fact, I went on tour with my orchestra this summer, which I am privileged to have led this past year. It was the best ever. Superb. We were playing awesome music.

    So hope to talk to you guys soon!

    Welcome ... What should I call you? Both Jesus and Freak sound a bit rude on their own :p: How about JF?

    Piano and violin? I'd love to play those instruments... I wrote loads of music for violins.
