The Blockflute Band, provides an opportunity for members to perform in concerts and to give wider public exposure of the recorder and raise funds for charity.
Our last concert, jointly with the Bristowe Consort and soloist Christopher Bull, was on 6th March 2020 at Westbury-on-Trym Methodist Church, in aid of Bristol City of Sanctuary, Transport Fund. We had a large and appreciative audience and we were able to donate almost £800 to the charity. The programme for the concert can be found here.
Programmes of previous concerts are available in pdf format.
We were hoping to do another concert in March 2021, but this was obviously not possible. However, we are now planning a concert on 12 November 2021 with rehearsals starting on 30th September. Players have been recruited and music distributed. Programme will include
Tomkins Fantasia a 6 No.3
Ann Marshall Septet No.3
