Music Appreciation

 The Music Appreciation Group meets for two hours at 10.30  on the 3rd Monday of each month at my home. We have room for new members and, if there is sufficient interest, we could start a second group on the afternoon of the same day.

We focus on classical music but I am always happy to widen the scope to cover member’s varying interests.  Usually a different subject is discussed each month but the more complex topics may be considered over two consecutive months.  The subjects are usually chosen by me but group members suggestions are always welcome.  Forthcoming topics include:-  “Waltzes and other types of dance forming part of a much larger musical work”, “ An overview of the music of Richard Strauss”, and “A brief survey of organ music from J.S. Bach to the mid 20th century”.

 We usually spend up to 70%  of a meeting listening to music which is then followed by lively, informal discussion and debate. We keep it as inclusive and informal as possible so that everyone attending can gain something from each session,  no matter what musical level they are presently at.  This group is aimed at music lovers and casual music fans of all abilities!


If you are interested in any further details or in joining this group please, to start with, contact Alan Stanbridge on 0161 427 4262 or via groupcoordinator@mbmu3a.org.uk.  You can also contact me directly by e-mail at jonathangort@aol.com.
