Group performance with Stockstadt’s large recorder orchestra
Premiere! We cordially invite you to actively get involved in the musical warm-up for the 2018 Festival in our Altrheinhalle concert venue. Join us on Thursday afternoon and play alongside the Stockstadt recorder choir. We will take great pleasure in playing old and new pieces, performing on small and large flutes, under the expert guidance of Katharina Hess and Frank Oberschelp.
Take an active musical role in the opening of the 2018 Recorder Festival in Stockstadt! For the very first time, the festival’s kick-off concert INTRADA will offer recorder ensemble performers the chance to play in a large-size recorder orchestra under the leadership of Katharina Hess and Frank Oberschelp.
As part of a varied musical programme, you and the two ensemble directors will be exploring the recorder’s sound possibilities in a large orchestral performance. Why not attend this “mini workshop” as a player of this fine instrument and embark a journey of discovery alongside the two instructors. Master the musical challenge through practice and exploration, and with a highly curious, attentive state of mind. Become receptive to the music and its demands as it casts its spell. The INTRADA concert is guaranteed to be an extraordinary ensemble experience!
Katharina Hess and Frank Oberschelp are excited to meet all the participants and anticipate exciting hours filled with musical treats from diverse periods in music history, including works by Monteverdi, Holborne, Bach, Grieg and Maute.
We look forward to your involvement in the INTRADA concert and the experience of hearing the large recorder orchestra of the town of Stockstadt.
