Winds Mary Howard

Formed in 2011, Norfolk Winds has quickly established itself as the foremost ensemble for wind chamber music in Norfolk. With  the popular recital flautist, Anna Hopkins, at the helm, the Winds also include oboe, clarinet and bassoon. A chamber music specialist, Mary Howard studied with Bruce Vogt in Canada and Dario de Rosa in Italy before moving to England and to Norfolk. Music from the UK and Europe.

Your support for the concerts and events helps to keep St Botolph's standing.
One of Norfolk's finest churches, it is a uniquely beautiful building both for worship and music-making.

  • In 2005 the tower was secured from splitting.
  • In 2010 the chancel roof was repaired.
  • The historic 1808 Wm Gray organ was restored in 2011.
  • In 2014 winter cloakroom facilities were installed.

The concerts at St Botolph’s Church, Trunch, enter their 17th season this year. The quality of performances is now very high indeed, increasingly attracting audience from beyond the local vicinity.

All concert proceeds will continue to be donated to St Botolph’s Church restoration projects. The Church and community would like to thank both the audiences and the performers for their generosity. Since 1998 the concerts have raised over £20,000 towards these projects. Thanks too to the dynamic Trunch Village Society for its support for publicity.

Performers reserve the right to change their programmes from those indicated in the brochure or website. The organising team will take reasonable steps to give notice if any concert has to be postponed or cancelled. Please check this website for up to date information closer to the dates of the concert.
