Went to the Carlton after orchestra to find a very depleted SGO quiz presence -- only ewx, beckyc, cjwatson and Peter Benie. Had interesting music-related conversations with the latter two and (once again) resolved to get some kind of music ensemble going. A string quartet would be good, but we are sadly lacking in violins/violas -- I can play either (though would prefer violin for the time being as I'm vastly more out-of-practice on viola) but I seem to be the only one in Cambridge who'll admit to being able to do so. On the other hand, we have three cellists (cjwatson, emperor and timeplease) so could probably manage something along the lines of Apocalyptica if I played viola and pretended to be the high end of the cello range. :-)
Call for musicians
Anyway: if anybody in Cambridge plays anything, frankly, and wants to get involved in a very amateurish play-random-music-for-fun collective, then shout here (or shout at me by email). At the moment I think the bias is likely to be towards classical and "light" music, but that's negotiable.
