Parts: a message from the librarians

This is how the librarians try to ensure that parts are available each week for players and don't get lost:

  • The librarians prepare the music folders before the start of term so that each desk has a full set of parts. If any parts are not present then an explanatory note is included in the folder.

  • Each music folder is labeled as to which desk it is for and the parts in the folder are similarly identified. The folder and the music are the responsibility of the player(s) assigned to that specific desk.

  • Spare music, when there is any, is usually only extra string parts; occasionally double wind parts are provided.

Any spare music is not generally available at the rehearsal venue but can be made available by prior arrangement or collected after a rehearsal – contact Tess Crilly (violin) in person or email
