Wayland Recorder Orchestra concert
Conducted by Helen Hooker
3.00 Sunday 8 October 2017
At Shrivenham School, 28 High Street, Shrivenham, SN6 8AA
For the last three years, Ann and Steve have organised an annual concert by Helen and the Helenettes, a recorder octet comprising Helen Hooker and players from the Phoenix Recorder Orchestra. The concerts took place at Newnham-on-Severn, Highnam (near Gloucester) and Kencot (near Lechlade), and featured Helen in solos and in works accompanied by Rosemary Robinson on spinet, as well as leading the entire ensemble. The concerts were very successful indeed, and encouraged us to start a new round of planning on the morning after each one.
For 2017 we decided to vary the formula a little. The ensemble has been increased in size to sixteen, and we will be joined by players from other recorder orchestras in the South of England. Helen Hooker will step out of the ensemble and conduct the group, although we have also persuaded her to demonstrate her marvellous playing skills by taking the solo part in the Sammartini Concerto in F – a real treat!
