Final concert of season to be held at Baptist Church
THE last concert in this year’s series at Loughborough Baptist Church will be given by Alison Nairn (flute/piccolo) accompanied by Antony Clare, on Tuesday, June 19.
Alison started playing the flute at the age of 11 and hasn’t stopped since. She is a member of the Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra, where she sits in the piccolo chair and is a keen advocate for all the members of the flute family including both the wooden and silver flute, piccolo and alto flute.
In particular she is keen to introduce audiences to some of the new works written for the piccolo to show that it is just as capa- ble as the flute as a solo instrument and is certainly more that just a ‘shrieking twig!’
Antony Clare was born in Nottingham. He read music at York University and has subsequently combined piano and clarinet teaching with a range of performing activities, including solo recitals in Nottingham and London. He also works as an accompanist for recitals and exams on a regular basis.
This their first appearance in Loughborough as recitalists and promises to be a memorable occasion.
A new series of lunchtime concerts will commence in September.
