Hampshire Recorder Sinfonia on the loose at last

The South’s premier recorder orchestra is back with a programme to bring a reminder of sunny dancing days as autumn descends! Hampshire Recorder Sinfonia, which features seven sizes of recorders from the 6-inch sopranino to the 6-foot contrabass, is looking forward to playing again at St George’s Church Whyke, Cleveland Road, Chichester PO19 7AD.

The concert with conductor Christopher Burgess is on Sunday November 20th at 3.30pm and begins with Handel’s celebration of St Cecilia, the patron saint of music and musicians and ends with Henry Mancini’s “Baby Elephant” Walk. In between you can hear popular favourites like Billy Mayerl’s “Autumn Crocus” and Bucalossi’s “Grasshoppers’ Dance”. Music by Vaughan Williams and Sir Edward German is also on the bill together with a delightfully evocative Midsummer Meadow Suite by living composer Lyndon Hilling.

Tickets are £10 at the door. Chichester is a much-loved venue for Hampshire Recorder Sinfonia and the orchestra is delighted to be back after an enforced long break. St George’s Church is a friendly and welcoming venue and HRS looks forward to greeting old friends and making new ones. Come along and hear the impressively resonant sound of the full range of recorders!
