My opinion is: Main hall has good acoustics, but will I get there in time this evening to get all my instruments set up, find out what parts & instruments I'm playing and get to see the music before the performance?
A chance to play through it first would be nice, but Sightreading R Us will probably be the mode today - same as the last 3 weekends with different orchestras.
At least I get chance to relax at a ceilidh in Wokingham tomorrow - despite having to be dressed in circus gear - and it's The Committee Band playing
Anyway, back to Ribston. We didn't look round it last year as we'd already looked round local Stroud, and decided that either that or Archway (gasp) would best suit DD.
I've never heard anything bad about either Ribston or HSG - only good things.
