St John’s Lunchtime Concert Series
A new series of Wednesday lunchtime concerts begins on 12th April at 1pm in the church, with a recital by flautist Nicola Woodward, who will play beautiful and unusual music for a variety of flutes including piccolo, alto and folk flutes, and whistles.
The programme includes the iconic Bach Partita in A minor, and a selection of the wonderfully evocative but rarely heard Chants de Nectaire by French composer Charles Koechlin. Nicola will also perform some of her own folk-style compositions and ‘Wake up!’ by Dehnhard for piccolo and alarm clock no less! She will give informal spoken programme notes throughout and be around afterwards for questions and a close up look at any of the instruments.
The series will continue on Wednesday lunchtimes at 1pm(refreshments from 12.30pm) with a variety of performers, to include the Mendip Ensemble (Flute, Oboe & Piano) on 26th April, a clarinet recital by Neil Moore on 10th May, and a concert by the Jubilate Recorders ensemble on 3rd May.
