The concert will be held on Saturday 20 July at 7.30pm, opening and closing with works by Beethoven – the ‘Rondino’ for Wind Octet and the glorious Symphony No 7. In between the audience will be treated to a rare performance of Telemann’s Suite in A minor featuring recorder player Jennie Flatman.
Jennie started playing the recorder at the age of 6 like many children, at primary school. Jennie later took recorder lessons with Jeanne Dolmetsch and she performed as part of the Dolmetsch ensemble on a number of occasions. After that, Jennie went on to study recorder at Birmingham Conservatoire and later at the University College, Chichester (now Chichester University) graduating in music in 2003. Jennie then went on to gain her PGCE in 2006. Since that time, Jennie has been teaching clarinet, saxophone and recorder peripatetically in many local schools and privately, as well as performing as a local soloist and playing within many different ensembles. Jennie is a founder member of Solent Baroque, a new and exciting chamber ensemble based in Hampshire. In addition to this, Jennie plays clarinet and saxophone in various local bands and orchestras, and as part of the Ensemble Concertante Clarinet Quartet.
Jennie is also a local representative for Trinity College music exams, and if this isn’t enough, she has two young children and a husband to keep her busy!
