A “Double Reed Day” was held at Pelhams on Sunday 5th February which was part sponsored by The Bournemouth North Rotary Club.


 A group of enthusiastic players of the Bassoon and Oboe gathered at Pelhams Community Centre over the weekend under the auspices of the Broadstone Music Series.  The morning sessions were a series of master classes under the watchful eye of professional players from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO), followed by the young players working on their individual development.

The day ended brilliantly with a mini concert featuring some favourites such as ‘The Sun Has Got It’s Hat On’ and the ‘Dambusters March in amongst pieces by Jean Boismortier and Handel.


The Bassoon and Oboe were played with such rich and melodic tones and need enthusiastic players.  If interested, juniors can hire or borrow instruments to get them started.  To find out more contact Alison Kay of the Broadstone Music Series
