Fi­nal con­cert of sea­son to be held at Bap­tist Church

Loughborough Echo - - LEISURE -

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.
