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.
We are planning another Blockflute Band Concert on Friday 2nd March 2018 at 7.30pm. at Whiteshill Evangelical Church, Bristol Road, Hambrook, Bristol, BS16 1SD with a dress rehearsal the night (1st March) before in the church. The church supports the charity Crisis Centre Ministries which has four separate projects. We propose to support the Spring of Hope Ladies Night Shelter.
Weekly rehearsals will be on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm on 18, 25 Jan, 1, 8, 15, 22 Feb. in Room 1, Methodist Church Hall, North View Westbury Park). If you would like to take part, please either respond to this email or sign up at the November or December SRP Bristol Branch meetings. The usual conditions will apply i.e. you should be able to attend the final rehearsal at the church on 1st March and at least five of the other six rehearsals.
I haven't yet given much thought to the music, so if you have any favourites you would like to play again or have ideas for new works please let me know. Possibilities include Klezmer Collection by Marg Hall (suggested by Stasia and played during the Flanders Recorder Quartet workshop) and one of Eileen Silcocks's pieces (perhaps Playford Suite).
Please contact Dick Little for further information
