Welcome to our celebration of the recorder with Pink Noise Recorder Quintet and Baroque and Beyond.
RECORDER: THE NEW FRONTIER – Workshop
Excited by modern recorder music, but unsure how to create all those challenging sound effects? Let Pink Noise help: In this workshop we will guide you through the basics of the more common extended techniques (including flutter-tonguing, sputato, and glissando), and get you working on a piece you can help us play in our lunchtime concert (if you want to). Aimed at players of a reasonable standard, you should be able to read music and count to time. Bring whatever sizes of recorder you have available.
Please complete and return the workshop registration form. PDF – PNRQ Workshop form
Tickets available on the door or in advance from Eventbrite. Meet Pink Noise on Facebook.
THOROUGHLY MODERN – Concert
Pink Noise give a whistlestop tour of some of the gems in the modern recorder repertoire.You will hear everything from jazz to African-inspired rhythms, high energy takes on modern pop music to sonorous renditions of Bruckner and Pärt. Participants in the morning workshop will be invited to perform alongside Pink Noise, and there will be an opportunity for kids (small and large!) to try out instruments and ask questions after the performance.

7.30 pm Friday 1 December 2017
United Free Church, Fore Street, Totnes
Rosafresca with vocalist Hayley Guest, explore the golden age of art and culture in Spain through the Palace Songbook. Dating from about 1520, this magnificent collection of over 400 songs is one of the great legacies of Queen Isabella’s support of the arts and music. The collection features the villancico, or rustic dance-song that would have been commonplace at village festivities, though later developed and refined by court composers of the time. The songs express themes of interest to the Spanish people – from the political, religious and pastoral to the amorous and bawdy.
