Dear Concert Goer

May I take this opportunity to remind you of the concert in Stamford next Saturday? It is of general interest, and especially so to singers, flautists and recorder players.

There is a special sparkling concert on Saturday 30th September, at Stamford All Saints' at 7:30pm. Fergus Black is joined by Michael Copley (flute and recorder), and Caroline Sharpe, soprano. 

Caroline won the Mario Lanza Opera Competition, and is a professional singer: her ‘side gig’ is as borough carillonneur for Loughborough where she plays the 47 bell Carillon.

Michael Copley was one half of the Cambridge Buskers, a very famous and acclaimed classical music duo, and as such has toured the world for over twenty years. He and I met when Michael played at All Saints' in March, at the funeral of his mother-in-law, Iris Oakes. 

I hope you won't mind me repeating the 'blurb' from my earlier e-mail: "Promising an evening of sparkling music for flute and soprano, the programme includes a lark, a nightingale, a hush of evening, and some seacapes. I have found that there are three main repertoires for flute and soprano: there are baroque arias which mention birds; and there are French twentieth century songs, usually referencing the antique, or the orient. Finally, as Caroline can ably demonstrate, there are virtuoso coloratura soprano arias from the nineteenth century –- show off stuff. Some of this is very famous - heavens! Sir Henry Bishop's Lo Here the gentle lark is so well-known that Miss Piggy did it on the Muppets!

Enjoy a welcome glass of sparkling wine or soft drink on arrival - two different kinds of flute! (See what I did there?)"

Tickets £12. £9 concessions. Accompanied children free (no ticket needed) from Stamford Arts Centre, 01780 763203 or on the door.
