Family Concert

New to our festival this year was a family concert given by Fontanella Recorder Consort and sponsored by Border Marches Early Music Forum.

The programme was entitled “If you go down to the woods” and included pieces inspired by the natural world..there were frogs and nightingales, cuckoos and of course a teddy bear or two.

The children were able to get up close and personal to the recorders and were offered crayons and paper to illustrate some of the pieces to ensure the young people’s continued involvement. All in all it was a delightful event much enjoyed by the young and not so young!
