Students from Birmingham Conservatoire lunchtime concert

On Friday 14th June the students from the Early Music department presented a programme of Early Music in Saint Martins in the Cornmarket. This was our third collaboration with the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire students who played a variety of instruments and pieces to an appreciative audience. We heard music for a Jacobean Masque played on a consort of recorders, a Pepusch Concerto played on Baroque flutes, recorders and Baroque bassoon and a trio sonata by Vivaldi played on recorder, bassoon and organ.

The audience included a class of children from a nearby primary school who enjoyed front row seats and were happy to be invited to talk to the artists after the concert.


Baroquathon 2019

Our third Baroquathon took place on Monday 6th May and was another roaring success with some 40 participants; there were 12 ensembles, 6 solos, 6 duos, as well as group singing and recorder playing.

A variety of compositions from before 1850 were performed on viols, sackbut, recorders, flutes, French horn, oboe, saxophone, bassoon, violin, viola, accordion, concertina, guitar and wind synthesiser.

We collected over £200 which will be shared between the Elgar School and Worcestershire Early Music to help fund outreach projects offered by both organisations.

Worcestershire Early Music is grateful to the Elgar School of Music for its support, and we look forward to future collaborations, including Baroquathon 4 in 2020.


Hear My Voice Project

Worcestershire Early Music gratefully received funding recently from the Eveson Trust to buy new instruments for the ongoing work in daycare centres in Worcester and Droitwich. Our sessions are much appreciated by the young adults with complex needs who attend Spectrum Days and the Myriad Centre, and these specialist instruments have greatly enhanced their experience.
