Last Sunday we were joined by Ian Clarke and 104 flute players for a fantastic day of music making. Participants experienced playing Zig Zag Zoo and Walk Like This as a full ensemble as well as playing standard repertoire in smaller ensembles. We were all treated to a fantastic and beautiful concert by Ian Clarke, where we were astounded by his huge range of techniques and prolonged circular breathing! At the end of the day friends and family were able to appreciate the days work with impressive performances of Ian's pieces as well as the small ensemble work including Flight of the Bumblebee. Photos of the day will be posted shortly as well as a few video snippets of the days highlights.

On Sunday over 140 violin, viola, cello and double bass players gathered at Hills Road Sixth form College for the Steve Bingham String Day. Despite a few logistical headaches like trying to work out if it was possible to get 11 double basses, 37 cellos 11, violas, 38 violins and an audience in the recital room, the day was a great success. All the participants coped admirably with challenging music and the concert at the end of the day was testament to this. Its amazing what can be achieved in a day! I would like to thank all the participants and tutors for making the day so enjoyable. Pictures on flickr to follow.
