Gloucestershire Double Reed Day 2014

This year’s event is confirmed for Sunday June 29th at Pate’s Grammar School, Cheltenham. This is our third year at Pate’s, and the organisers are looking forward to another successful event. Many thanks to everyone who provided feedback last year. It really helps us fine tune the day so everyone gets the best possible experience.

The visiting masters will be Jenni Phillips (Head of Woodwind at Birmingham Conservatoire) and Robert Codd (former Principal Bassoon with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales).

An application form is now available here.

Gloucestershire Double Reed Day 2013

Welcome to the Gloucestershire Double Reed Day 2013 Blog!

This year’s event is confirmed for Sunday 23rd June at Pates Grammar School, Cheltenham. This is our second time at Pates, and we are hoping to build on the success of last year’s event. The organisers would like to thank all those attendees who provided feedback on the event, and have made a number of changes as a result.

The masterclasses will be taken by Meyrick Alexander (bassoon) and Murray “Sandy” Johnston (oboe). More details on the Visiting Masters page.

Both Howarths and Wonderful Winds will be attending once again, with a selection of instruments, reeds, accessories and music. Instrument repairer Jessica Rance will be available to carry out any minor repairs.
