MWO will play the biggest gig in our 40 year history this Saturday (21st) at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral ( the one shaped like a wigwam ) commencing at 7.30pm. Tickets are 5 pounds.

Any members in the north west of the UK who would like to come would be most welcome.

I'll be attending with my mum :thumb:

Would also like to add, i went to see MWO on sunday (15th) performing locally in New Brighton and it was an excellent afternoon, lovely day, lovely music.... perfect :D
Introduced myself to Rico (aka Tony) and have been invited to join the MWO :D to gain some much needed practice and confidence building, looking forward to next tuesday for my 1st band practice :D good job there will be plenty of other alto players to drown out my squarks n squeeks :)))

It is locally known as 'Paddy's Wigwam' :thumb:

One thing that will be an interesting challenge is the 9 or 10 second reverb time in the Wigwam. If I'm not too cream-crackered I might try to make it over myself - it's an hour's drive for me.

Well it was a great concert, very much enjoyed it :) it's been many years since iv'e been inside 'paddy's wigwam' very different cathedral.
It must have felt good being part of the biggest gig in the history of MWO, and getting a standing ovation at the end must have pleased you :)
I couldn't come over to say hello (Tony) as i had to get back to work, i'll see you on tuesday :thumb:

Ron.... see (or should that be hear) what you mean about the reverb, but it still sounded good to my untrained ears.

Sorry I wasn't there - I had forgotten I had an orchestra social to attend over near Chester. I think I should persuade my trumpet playing nephew to get interested - he plays with the Sefton Senior Wind Band. He starts 6th form next term and Maghull is not that far from where my brother lives.
