Join in our Double Reed Day on 4th of May

Saturday May 4th is the BDRS Double Reed Day in Wickham, Hampshire PO17 5HA – Come and meet our two Double Reed Day guests talking about historical instruments, as well as all the other double reed day music making activities, networking and shopping opportunities to be had!

Meet David Chatterton and the early bassoons, pictured with this enormous contrabassoon – an amazing instrument (photo above from April 2015) and David is fascinating to listen to!

We also look forward to hearing from Joel Raymond to demonstrate the baroque oboe and tell us about how they are made (Photo © Graham Salter, BridgemanImages.com) Joel has played with the Oxford Bach Soloists, the Hanover Band, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Gabrieli Consort as well as playing abroad.

We are also planning to run the Handel ‘Musick For The Royal Fireworks’ again, in a double reed version (without brass).

There are plenty of other activities to get involved in, or inspired by. All ages and abilities are welcome! There will also be several trade stands for you to visit during the day with instruments to try/buy, music publications, reeds and accessories, and double reed literature.

It’s not too late to sign up and we look forward to seeing you, whether you are a member or not, for this exciting and inspirational day of all things Double Reed.
