Since the Penrith Eisteddfod is approaching at the end of this month, we decided to dedicate part of the Guitar Club's August meeting to run a mock eisteddfod, as some of our attendees are enrolled in the Penrith Eisteddfod.
A few of the meeting's attendees had a chance to give a performance of their Eisteddfod pieces in an Eisteddfod environment: we set up the room with a stage, audience seating, and adjudicator's desk. The performers received a sheet of comments from an adjudicator, and they had an opportunity to discuss their performance with each other afterwards.
As we always do, we finished with an ensemble piece; this time it was an arrangement of some music by Fernando Sor.
Thank you to all who attended, it was interesting to change the format of the meeting to cater for upcoming events/situations. If anyone has any ideas of musical activities which they would like to share at a future Guitar Club meeting, please send in a suggestion.
