Four recorder players & 25+ recorders arrived in Scotland ✅
First concert given ✅
Following a rather dramatic start, with a member of the quartet pulling out of the tour for medical reasons with 24 hours to go, we are thrilled to have made it to Scotland to start our Tunnell Trust adventure!!
We need to say a huge thank you to Rebecca Vucetic, who stepped in as our fourth member. She had possibly the most productive 4 hour train ride ever, learning the parts on the ride from London – Edinburgh!
We received an exceptionally warm welcome from Strathearn music society.
Chatting with the audience in the interval and following the concert, it was lovely to discover that for many of them it was their first time hearing our instrument, the recorder, in all it’s different shapes and sizes, with music spanning 1000 years!
We were also thrilled there we a couple of fellow recorder enthusiasts in attendance, who had some in depth questions about breathing and articulation, to relay to their own recorder ensembles. Go team recorder!
After rehearsing this morning we are heading to Fort William, presenting our Double Double Toil and Trouble programme, all about the links between music and magic with Lochaber Music for All tonight.
