With the Beast of the East in retreat at last and hopefully a thaw on it's way, its a good time to plan ahead for warmer evenings of candlelight, music and wine!
'One World One Flute" is a programme of world music performed and devised by Nicola Woodward, a popular and experienced musician with an extensive CV that includes recitals at the Wigmore Hall, The Purcell Rooms, Highgrove, Buckingham Palace and our barns (with Opera Project)!!
Nicola will be playing a variety of instruments that include the piccolo, alto and bamboo flute, South American quena and Irish whistles. She says:
'This programme is full of the music I love best – that influenced by music of the people. I would love to share this music and celebrate the differences and more often the similarities of folk music from around the world'.
We are also delighted that Rachel Goode (soprano) from the Royal Welsh College, whose scholarship was part-funded by our Opera Gala last July, will join Nicola for the performance of Irish folk songs.
