Music for a Summer’s Evening

Performed by the Ensemble East Wind Quintet


  • Flute – Claire Luck
  • Oboe – Juliet Rickard
  • Clarinet – Amy Robinson
  • Bassoon – Barry Carben
  • Horn – Chrissie Owens

Ensemble East was formed in 2018 by a group of friends who are passionate about chamber music, Ensemble East is a relatively new player on the Norfolk music scene.
A group of thirty musicians Ensemble East can metamorphose into many different configurations performs works ranging from the 18th century classical period to recent works in the 20th century; fabulous Haydn Symphonies, Mendelssohn’s incomparable string octet, Beethoven’s magnificent septet, Debussy’s beautiful Petite Suite for wind quintet.
Due to the intimate nature of chamber music Ensemble East performs in smaller venues such as churches and large rooms by professionally trained musicians from across East Anglia.

Often performing without a conductor, it makes the players work much harder and brings the music to life in a fascinating way that is authentic for the period of composition.
The Ensemble East wind quintet comprising of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn, will play a range of light summer music that is designed to induce a pleasant haze over our audience on a summer’s evening listening to wonderful sounds from friendly and committed musicians.

This concert promises to be a highlight on the summer music scene with a programme dedicated to uplifting pieces. Book now by clicking here or call Liz Cooper on 01362 699195.

Cellos Unleashed

Four virtuoso cellists return to Whinburgh for this year’s festival to perform a concert that will unveil the full breadth of this amazing instrument.

Talent in ‘bucket loads’ is the order of the day as the Cellophonics perform a programme spanning Boismortier to Piazzolla.

This is a very rare opportunity to hear professional cellists perform their chosen pieces to ‘show off’ the instrument in its extreme.

Four cellos together produce the unique sound of the cello quartet and crossing boundaries they will ensure that this will be uplifting music at its finest.

When the Cellophonics first performed in Whinburgh in 2015 the audience was amazed at the range of this instrument and the expertise of the four performers. The concert remains with the audience as a night to remember and this year’s concert promises to be even more uplifting with Ben Rogerson, Adrian Bradbury, Christopher Allen and Nick Holland  (for details of the performers click here) bringing their true talent to the fore when they perform a mixed programme of wonderful pieces.

Do not miss out on this rare opportunity to experience great music, enthusiastically performed at the highest level.
