Concerto Premiere Announced

On May 26th 2017, the new concerto for recorder by Graham Fitkin will be premiered at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival by Sophie Westbrooke, BBC Young Musician Concerto Finalist 2014, and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

More than half the funding has come from recorder players, which makes this a very special and unusual project. Special thanks to Birmingham, Bristol, Cleveland, Leicester, Mid-Herts, Norfolk, Suffolk and York Guildhall Branches, EROS and the Central Committee plus many individual angels for getting this project so far. 

We are still fund-raising however, and need to raise £8000 by the end of the year. Contributions may be made via the SRP and Gift Aid applies.
