End of Term Concert - Saturday 7th July 2012 - With Added ‘Fnugg’

On Saturday 7th July there will be a free concert at the Huntingdonshire Regional College starting at 19:30 given by some of the ensembles at the music school.

We also have a new feature - a spot for staff to strut their stuff. Taking the first spotlight is Robin Norman who teaches brass and directs the Senior Concert Band and the Senior Orchestra. Not being a wallflower - they don’t tend to suit tubas - Robin is playing ‘Fnug’ which demonstrates some of the many sounds a tuba is capable of including harmonics and beat-boxing. There is more information on this piece on YouTube.

All members of the public are welcome

HUMSA Summer Trip 2011 - Marburg, Germany

Huntingdonshire is twinned with Marburg-Biedenkopf in the state of Hess, Germany, about 50 miles north of Frankfurt.  It is a really attractive region with tree covered hills all around. Marburg Biedenkopf has a summer music festival and we have been invited to take part. The trip will be centred around the picturesque village of Bad Endbach. A new swimming pool and spa opened last October and the village also has shops, cafes etc.
Marburg is a very interesting old university town with plenty of shops to visit.

Links: Wikipedia - Marburg-Biedenkopf, Wikipedia - Bad Endbach, city of Marburg website, videos:

YouTube - video 1 (never mind the soundtrack!), YouTube - video 2

The trip is open to any student of the Huntingdonshire Music School - you don’t need to be playing in a band or ensemble.

Itinerary

Thursday 11th August:

  • Early start from HRC, travelling by coach and ferry.
  • Plan to arrive at 18:00 and have a group meal

Friday 12th August - Sunday 14th August

  • A number of concerts, depending upon who goes and the bands we can form
  • Coach sightseeing trips, possibilities include:
    • Ski lift and summer tobogganing
    • Edersee and Eder dam and waterparc
    • Other options to be built into the itinerary
  • Final group meal

Monday 15th August:

  • Early start from Bad Endbach
  • ETA Huntingdon 19:00

Accommodation

We will be staying in the village of Bad Endbach. There isn’t a big enough hotel in Bad Endbach that will accommodate us all, so we will have to be split between 2 (possibly 3) hotels situated close together. The rooms are ensuite singles, twins or doubles, and some will have the capability of having an extra single bed put in the room. There may be an option to stay with local families.

Cost

Adults c £220
Children c £200

We hope to have a donation from Huntingdonshire District Council that will help toward the cost of the trip; we will also hold fundraising events to raise funds for the trip. If there are 40 people on the trip and the fund raising goes well, the adult price could drop to £175.

Included in price:

  • All travel throughout the trip from and back to HRC, inc excursion transport.
  • Evening meal on arrival at Bad Endbach
  • 4 nights Hotel accommodation, bed & breakfast.
  • End of tour meal.
