Charity Concert: Michaelmas 2012

Presenting Cambridge University Chinese Orchestra’s first concert of this year: Michaelmas 2012 Charity Concert

8-10 PM, 25th November
Auditorium, Queen’s Building
Emmanuel College

Tickets: £2 with reservation; £3 at door

To reserve: send your name, numbers of tickets needed and phone number(optional) to zy239@cam.ac.uk or 07801559488. Pay and collect at the door, no advanced payment needed. Advanced booking strongly recommended.


Please be reminded that our first rehearsal of the academic year will be 16:30 – 18:30 tomorrow(Sunday 14/10/2012), at the Music Room of Robinson College.

Our plan tomorrow is to get to know each other and play an abstract of the Butterfly Lovers. The music would be nice but easy.

For violinists: as the piece is a violin concerto, the solo part is extremely important. But it is also a golden opportunity to show your talent and improve your skills. Honestly, it doesn’t happen often that a whole orchestra accompanies you. If any of you is interested in being the soloist, do let me know at dz257@cam.ac.uk, or at the rehearsal.

Here is a Google map showing the location of the college shown below. The college is built with red bricks, opposite the University Library.

I have also included a map of Robinson College in the attachment. The music room has the Label 22, at the top right corner of the map.


As usual, you can always contact Dan(07927292306) or Xiaoyang(07547211920) if there are any questions.

Hope to see many of you tomorrow!
