Helen Roberts - Cornetto, Cornettino, Tenor Cornetto
South West Early Winds Weekend
Come and join Adam Woolf and myself for a full two days of music for early winds. Open to cornett, sackbutt, double reed and recorder players, we'll spend two days rehearsing and workshopping 16th and 17th century ensemble music, with a focus on German repertoire, and perform a short concert on the Sunday afternoon. We'll also be working with the choir of Christchurch Frome, so there'll be an opportunity to sing for those who'd like. Repertoire will include music by Schütz and Schein, along with their contemporaries, depending on the forces attending, and will be a great opportunity to explore this wonderful music as a group. The course will take place in venues around Frome, a small and beautiful town 10 miles from Bath, and the closing concert will take place in Christ Church, where there is a really lovely acoustic. The course will cost £70 (£50 for students), which includes ensemble coaching and light refreshments (but not meals). There are various options for accommodation in and around Frome, details of which can be found on the information sheet below. To reserve your place, email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Helen on (01373) 462624.
