Music Community Prepare for the Cornwall Flute Festival 25 and 26 March

The south west’s vibrant flute community are to descend on Truro School for two days on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March for the Cornwall Flute Festival.

Organised by the Cornwall Music Service Trust in partnership with Truro School’s music department, the two day event will feature a variety of workshops and eight masterclass sessions.

Saturday night will see headline act Katherine Bryan, Principal Flautist with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, perform live with accompanist Tim Carey. The concert programme will feature the following works:-  Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending

CPE Bach - Sonata in A minor (1&3 mvts), Poulenc - Sonata, Donizetti - Sonata, Mozart - Dove Sono (Marriage of Figaro), Dvorak - Song of the Moon (Rusalka), Gounod - Je veux vivre, Borne - Carmen Fantasy

Kate Whetter, event organiser and Cornwall Music Service Trust representative, said: “To provide an opportunity for the south west’s flute community to come together and learn from world class musicians like Katherine Bryan is something we are all very proud to offer here at the Cornwall Music Service Trust as we grow from strength to strength since our conception in 2014.”

She continued: “We are building upon the success of last year's inaugural event so in addition this year there will be performances by Farley's Flutes, Cornwall Junior Flutes and Flautistas! before the main Saturday evening concert."

The two day event is also supported by exhibitors Just Flutes, Wonderful Winds and Jessica Rance Woodwind Instrument Repairs.

Tickets cost £35 for one day or £60 for both days and are available through the Cornwall Music Service Trust on 01872 246 043 or by emailing
