A bid to pitch practice opportunities at a broader range of instrumentalists has been unveiled at Octavia Hill’s Birthplace House in Wisbech.
A music practice group, which is open to all instrumentalists from young to old, is being launched as the successor to the piano practice group, which has been running for the last seven years at the museum.
Organiser Clive Donald said: “The main reason for opening this up to a wider range of instrumentalists is that more musical students will now have the opportunity to practise in front of a small, friendly audience.”
The group will meet at the house all year round on the first Saturday of each month at 10am for an hour and on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm for an hour and a half.
Musicians of all abilities aged from seven to over 80 gather in the handsome Long Room, where the grand piano is situated.
