The Big Double Reed Zoom - Book Tickets Here

We are excited to announce our sponsorship of the Big Double Reed Zoom, introducing the first in a series of online bassoon and oboe workshops!

The Big Double Reed Day has been the number one event in the bassoon and oboe calendar for some years now, and it is with great pleasure that we work closely with them to bring these events online in the coming weeks and months.

The first workshop will take place online this Sunday morning (8th Nov), and will be taken by Bob Porter, bassoonist and Artistic Director of the BIG Double Reed Day, and oboist Rachel Broadbent. Both are fantastic performers and tutors with a great deal of experience teaching online in recent times – read more about Bob and Rachel here.

Workshops are for a maximum of 8 players. Participants are invited to choose a piece to perform and work on with the tutor. The plan is that classes will last for two hours with a fifteen-minute break. Tickets can be bought online via TicketSource and cost £25.

  • Sunday 8th November, 10.30am - 12.45pm
