Date(s) - 2nd Mar 2019
10:00 - 16:00
Applications are now open to join Clare Beesley’s Renaissance flute day – organised in conjunction with Worcestershire Early Music – on Saturday 2nd March 2019. All players of discant, tenor and bass instruments (or potential bassists – Clare has two instruments to loan) welcome.
The day focusses on Renaissance flute playing in consort though there will be sessions to help with selected aspects of technique and opportunities, for those who wish, to try their hand at playing from early notation within a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere. In terms of ability, participants should feel comfortable enough with their instrument and its particular fingerings to hold a part (in modern notation), though help will always be close at hand!
Location: Angel Place, WR1 3QN. Time: 1000h – 1600h. Day ticket: £25.

Clare Beesley enjoys a busy and varied career as a flute-player, specialising in historical performance practice on early flutes spanning the Renaissance to Romantic periods. Clare is an enthusiastic teacher and ensemble coach, and has tutored on the annual chamber music course Baroque Week since 2010.
Educated first at the Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), Clare received a BA (Hons) degree in modern flute (1997) and a Masters degree (with commendation) in baroque flute (1999). She then pursued her interest in early music at the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague (The Netherlands) under the tutelage of Wilbert Hazelzet (baroque and classical flutes) and Kate Clark (renaissance flute). She received further Bachelor and Master degrees in historical performance practice (the latter with distinction for achievements in renaissance consort playing) in 2004 and 2006.
