Maidstone Recorder Festival 2018
In March 2018, the Maidstone Recorder Festival hosted 55 young musicians from across Maidstone to come together to play 12 fun recorder pieces including ‘Here Comes Treble’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’.
Led by conductor Karen Barton-Holman, they entertained family and friends in an evening concert at Cornwallis Academy. St Katherine’s Primary School treated us to their own two lovely pieces ‘Happy Go lucky’ and ‘Ollie the Collie’ as did St Margaret’s Collier Street with ‘Western Theme’. The wonderful Kent Youth Recorders played two beautiful pieces from their advanced repertoire and inspired the young beginners. The children enjoyed professional accompaniment with teachers on piano, drums and double bass providing the backing. Audience participation was encouraged throughout, especially for the big hit at the end.. ‘Pizza Hut’!
