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.

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.

LET US DANCE, LET US SING
Baroque&Beyond with soprano,
Toe-tapping instrumental dance suites meet stunning arias for soprano voice and continuo. Ever the conjuror of birdsong and pastoral frolics, Baroque and Beyond showcase the possibilities of the recorder in chamber music of the eighteenth century: a fitting conclusion to a day-long celebration of this humble yet evocative instrument.
