We have 5 amazing and brave flautists who will be working with Amy on some beautiful repertoire and they need an orchestra to support them! Places are extremely limited on this one and sadly we cannot accept any enrolments from other flautists.We are very keen to invite more string players to this event to make it viable – please do sign up as soon as possible if you’re interested!The repertoire will include movements from Mozart Concerto in D, Reinecke Concerto, Ibert Concerto and Mozart Andante in C. The day will conclude with Amy doing a small performance for us all.Please enrol by clicking the link here if you are interested in joining this workshop. Please don’t pay for this event until we have confirmed you have a place.

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 with Helen Farrar
Sunday 21st November
Appleby Town Hall, Boroughgate
Appleby-In-Westmorland, CA16 6YB

We are so delighted that Helen Farrar will join us in a much-anticipated, this time live in person workshop on Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.2.
Helen has travelled the world performing with many orchestras and making guest recitals at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, as part of the Opal Foundation ‘The Magic of Music’. Helen has also performed in Windsor as part of the Windsor Arts festival, Music in The Round in Sheffield, and so we are delighted that we are have the opportunity to work with her.

You might remember she joined us during the lockdown as we had a go at the Rachmaninov Concerto No. 2 virtually, but we all agreed that we had to try this one out live, so we really hope you’ll be able to join us and make this a very special event with Helen.

If you’re interested please enrol as soon as possible by clicking the link here.
