The Admiral's Wind Ensemble

Wednesday 1.30 - 3.30

This popular group provides an opportunity for wind players who may not have kept up their playing. If you still own a flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone or bassoon, join us and enjoy learning and playing with others. You need have played in a group recently or at all. ABRSM Grade 2 – 4 is a recommended level and basic knowledge of sight-reading would make you feel more comfortable. We presently have 5 flutes, 3 clarinets and a tenor-saxophone/sacbut player and would welcome recorders, oboes, clarinet and bassoon players.
This is our fourth year exploring every style of music – from Tudor madrigals, baroque and classical pieces, and music from stage, cinema and television. Our repertoire has grown to over 20 new customised pieces for our ensemble and we enjoy working together on various skills to improve our techniques and musicianship.
You will be expected to practise, but fun and good humour is the order of the day. What you used to love about playing music can be rediscovered with AWE – come and try us out!
