Open Day Success

June Emerson Wind Music, Windmill Farm, York

It was a beautiful sunny open day, with friendly and interesting visitors - some regulars and some new, including a clarinet quartet who had travelled from quite a distance (one of them had set off from Gloucestershire at the crack of dawn!) and treated us to an hour or so of playing as they sorted out some new repertoire for their upcoming concerts.

Everyone enjoyed themselves, having the unrivalled opportunity to spend as long as they liked browsing through the extensive stock, discovering unexpected delights in the second-hand boxes and being plied regularly with tea, coffee and biscuits. All said they'd definitely come again and would keep an eye out for information on the next open day.....

...which will be Saturday 8th January 2011 (barring heavy snowfall, which
meant the cancellation of the January 2010 open day).
