Concert: 'ONE WORLD ONE FLUTE '- - Saturday 12th May 7.30pm performed by Nicola Woodward
One flute, one world……every race, every people has forever expressed love, life, joy and sorrow through the flute.
We are very lucky to have Nicola Woodward a popular and hugely experienced flautist, to perform this exciting concert for us in the barns. She has prepared a very varied programme which includes three irish folk songs. These will be sung by Rachel Goode who is in the final year of her postgraduate training at the RWCMD.
Nicola says: 'This programme is full of the music I love best – that influenced by music of the people. I love to share this music and celebrate the differences and more often the similarities of folk music from around the world. I will play the flute, alto flute, piccolo, Thai bamboo flute, South American quena, Irish whistles and folk flute.'
“The first time I heard Nicki I was bowled over – this morning I am bowled over – all over again! Thank you for sharing your expertise, joy of playing and fun. It’s been a fabulous morning.” U3A
TICKETS = £15 - UNDER 18YRS = £10

Nicola's Biography: As well as many recitals in festivals across the UK, I had many rewarding years the 'Live Music Now!' scheme with my brother and our flutes/marimba duo. We also regularly entertained guests of HRH the Prince of Wales at Highrove, Windsor and Buckingham Palace. I toured in South America for the British Council and worked with London Philharmonic and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestras. I am currently recording the little-known but wonderful 96 unaccompanied pieces by Charles Koechlin 'Chants de Nectaire' and will soon perform a recent commission by composer Lois Wyat.
My love of folk music led me to recording a CD of music inspired by folk music of the British Isles, playing and recording Flamenco music, playing and singing in folk bands and co-founding the Rockhampton Folk Festival now in its fifth year.
