Flute Feast in Normandy

Sunday, 5 November - Saturday, 11 November

Where? Chateau La Chenevière, Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, France

Join Paul Edmund-Davies, Elisabeth Hobbs and pianist John Alley for an exceptional flute experience in France. Flute Feasts are renowned for their friendly atmosphere, fine food, champagne, luxurious accommodation and fascinating excursions - all combined with the very best in flute playing. Strictly limited to 12 participants (partners welcome), you will experience individual lessons with Paul and Elisabeth, piano coaching with John, ensemble playing, chamber music, and fine concerts. Daily champagne tastings are a highlight! The course concludes with a public concert in the Bishop's Palace of Bayeaux Cathedral, followed by a gala dinner hosted by the Friends of the Cathedral Museum. Finally - a very special guest will also be joining us. US Astronaut Cady Coleman (who even took her flute to the space station!) will be with us as a participant, and will share her experiences with us. Truly an unmissable opportunity to find "Space for your Flute" in your life!

A half-day flute workshop with Dr. Jessica Quiñones (www.JQflute.com)

Description: If you’ve always wanted to tap into a beautifully resonant flute tone but are not sure how, then this flute workshop is for you! Spend a morning with American flautist and teacher Jessica to learn techniques to simplify the mystery of a stunning tone no matter which genre you play. Replace tone development dread with confidence and delight. Learn contemporary flute techniques that will help you refine, strengthen and deepen your understanding of the tools needed to create resonance in your playing. We’ll go beyond ‘just playing long notes’ and delve into topics such as extended techniques, vibrato, dynamic control and breathwork.

At the end of this one-day workshop you will be able to

  • Explore how your flute headjoint, body posture, mouth and throat positioning can be tweaked for your best sound
  • Learn a variety of exercises that you can put into your daily practice routine to deepen into refining dynamics, articulation, lip flexibility and vibrato control

Recitals and Concerts

Autumn Flute Recital - Chiswick -  2017

Saturday, 28 October, 19:30

Where? St Michael & All Angels Church,
London
W4 1TT

A recital of music for flute and piano, and maybe more :-) 

Programme to be announced, but certain to include some great British music.

Last year's autumn recital was a success and raised £300 for charity. This year I'd like to make this free entry, and "Pay what you can", with a suggested price of £10 for those that can afford it - but absolutely no obligation or expectation for those that can't.

Wine in the interval.
