Newbury Spring Festival Workshop

Published 23 March 2023

On Tuesday morning, a number of St Bart’s woodwind musicians were treated to a specialist workshop lead by the Ferio Sax Quartet, under the directorship of Huw Wiggin. You can watch the video here. After a stunning performance given initially by the professional quartet, our own players were given the opportunity to create their own music together in a similar style, and they benefited hugely from the expertise in creating unique Hoedown inspired compositions. Eva Dijksman and Amit Manna even got to conduct their groups, demonstrating excellent leadership and musicianship.  We are grateful to the Newbury Spring Festival for organising the event and we look forward to seeing the quartet at the forthcoming Spring Festival concert next term.
