The ever-popular Norfolk Winds with David Morgan (piano) on September 19th performing a woodwind take on the LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS (the Royal Albert Hall event will have been the week before) with a programme to include Elgar’s Harmony Music no 1 and his Harmony Music no. 5 (his first composition of symphonic scale), Poulenc’s witty and vivacious Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano, Taffanel’s Grande Fantaisie for Flute and Piano on Operatic Themes (Jean de Nivelle) and shorter pieces by Vaughan Williams, Gordon Jacob, Bach, Morgan, Parry and popular Proms encores.
Norfolk Winds are stalwarts of every Trunch season and always attract an enthusiastic audience. The group was formed in 2010 and comprises some of the most experienced and highly qualified woodwind players in the county. They often perform with the pianist and harpsichordist, David Morgan, extending the range of repertoire for combinations of flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon, and already several Norfolk-based and European-based composers have written music especially for the group. This arrangement also provides opportunities to perform in smaller combinations, including a wide range of trio sonatas and other baroque music. Described as ‘wonderfully talented musicians’ at a recent concert, Norfolk Winds have enjoyed some very creditable reviews in their public concerts.
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.
