Cruise to Sweden May 2017

  •   On Tuesday 30th May, Corinne drove to North Shields, Newcastle, to meet Fred Olsen’s cruise ship the Balmoral. At 5pm they set sail for Lysekil, Sweden. Other ports of call on this cruise were Helsingborg, Karlskrona & Trossö, Stockholm, and then Arendal for a visit to Gothenburg.  The guests were given a warm Swedish welcome at all the ports. At some, the ship docked along the quayside and at others the crew dropped anchor offshore where the ship’s tenders were used to travel to shore.

Corinne gave two multi-instrumental concerts in the Neptune Lounge on the long sea days and the atmosphere was electric! Several guests expressed appreciation for the Victorian Parlour music and Winifred Atwell’s ‘Britannia Rag’ went down a treat!


Haslemere Festival 26 May 2017

‘Gabriel’s Oboe’

Corinne performed another multi-styled, multi-instrumental programme before a capacity house in the Museum Hall as part of the Haslemere Festival. The warm and sensitive acoustic, in the hall that used to be the music room, created an ideal environment for the Bose L1 to accompany the music Corinne played on the oboe, cor anglais, soprano and tenor saxophones.

Much to the delight of the audience, Corinne played “Serenade des Anges”, written by Charles Kinkel for the piano, as an encore.

Good news for all fans too: Corinne has been asked to keep May 2019 free for another event in the Festival.

Corinne has recently returned from adjudicating the three week NIAA Eisteddfod in Harare, Zimbabwe.  She had the pleasure of hearing a multitude of young musicians perform solo as well as in orchestras.

It was particularly wonderful to see so many students studying to play such a wide variety of instruments, including double bass, trombone, oboe and bassoon. A particular highlight were the choirs, of both school age children and adults. The standard was very impressive. Continue reading →

Ave Maria played on the cor anglais at Dunstall Church in Staffordshire.

In this video, Corinne plays J.S.Bach/Charles Gounod’s popular melody of Ave Maria, originally published in 1853 as “Méditation sur le Premier Prélude de Piano de J. S. Bach”. She plays on a cor anglais Model 180 D made by Gebrüder Mönnig in Markneukirchen, Germany. The main body of the instrument is made from seasoned Grenadilla wood with a Cocobolo wood bell which creates a warm and mellow tone. Much of the key work is gold plated giving the instrument a stunning golden hue.
