‘Clocking On!’ Education Project

Project Dates: Jan 2017 – Ongoing
Latest Concert: 25 February 2017
Location: The Chapel, University of Chichester
Young People:Working with students from The University of Chichester Orchestra & Wind Band

The Project

The project is focused around the theme of ‘Inventions’ and incorporates science and music. Entitled ‘Clocking On!’ it draws links between Haydn’s Symphony No.101 ‘The Clock’ and Beethoven Symphony No.8 and the invention of the clock/metronome.

Through a series of schools workshops and day courses participants are mentored by players from The Hanover Band in sectionals and orchestral rehearsals.

‘Clocking On!’ is an ongoing project, with plans for continuation of participative events over the coming years.

So far we have enjoyed a fantastic concert held at The Chapel, University of Chichester on 25 February 2017, conducted by Anthony Halstead.

Tonight and tomorrow night: Handel’s beautiful “Alceste” in Budapest with Óbudai Danubia Zenekar, Liszt Ferenc Chamber Choir and super soloists (none of whom are on Twitter, imagine that!) Alceste is an unjustly neglected masterpiece from Mr Handel.

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies & arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
