Gabrieli with Philip Thorby

Tonbridge Methodist Church, Higham Lane, Tonbridge TN10 4JG

Cost: £12

Gabrieli’s  2 and 3 choir canzonas are masterpieces of polychoral music full of light and shade, grandeur, dancing rhythms and singing melodies. During the course of the day, we will study, in depth, some of the finest of these.  As well as conducting, Philip will give some historical and musical background to this fascinating repertoire.

Tonbridge North Recorders are a friendly group of about 15 recorder players directed by Dr Peter Bowman, a professional recorder player and teacher.  We meet on Monday evenings in a church hall in Tonbridge, from 8-10 pm to play a wide variety of music.  We follow school terms, usually with 10 meetings for each of the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms and in addition we give occasional concerts. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us for more information.  You should be able to sight-read music at an intermediate level and preferably play at least 2 of the four standard instruments.
