Young musicians to work with international flautist

Posted on Friday 11th March 2011 at 8:19 am by SH (Editor)

Up to 100 young flautists from South Gloucestershire will take part in a workshop at Kingsfield School in Kingswood on Thursday 24th March, with the celebrated flautist and composer Ian Clarke.

Organised by South Gloucestershire Music Service (SGMS), with support from B&NES Music Service and sponsored by John Packer of Taunton,the workshop enables young flautists to have the opportunity to work with an inspirational player, teacher and composer.

Ian Clarke is acknowledged as one of the leading player/composers in the flute world. His compositions have been performed across five continents on stages ranging from London’s South Bank to Glastonbury and have featured in the last four BBC Young Musician’s woodwind finals.

These published works have been established as some of the most exciting and innovative contemporary flute repertoire.

Ian Clarke, accompanied by Tim Carey, will also perform a public concert in the evening. The concert will take place at the Hexagon Theatre, Kingsfield School, Kingswood, BS15 4JT, at 7.30pm.

Tickets can be purchased on the door, £8 Adults/£4 Concessions.
