Participants who want to be part of the orchestra are invited to The Workshop and audience welcomed to The Performance.
The Workshop: Participants are to bring 3 or 4 smooth uncut glass or porcelain vessels for assessment by our virtuoso.  Then assemble by 5.30pm before the performance to tune your instruments and rehearse. Wear black, be prepared to sit on the floor and bring a cushion.
