A feast of fantastic flautists

A Woman In Black On The Left Conducts Five Women Playing Flutes

The West Sussex Flute Choir is celebrating after an incredible performance at a local music festival got them rave reviews. 

The flute choir, headed up by West Sussex Music’s Jo Eames, performed at the Horsham Performers Platform last week to the public and adjudicators, who gave outstanding feedback and encouragement. 

At Horsham Performers Platform the group played a varied set that included Toxic (Britney Spears), Lacrimosa (from Mozart’s Requiem), All that Jazz (Kander/Ebb), Wellerman and Eleanor Rigby (Lennon & McCartney). 

Horsham Performers Platform is an annual local adjudicated music festival providing a great opportunity for musicians of all ages to perform in a friendly environment, in front of an audience, and to receive feedback and advice from distinguished professional musicians.      

The adjudicator takes the stage after every few performances to provide encouraging and constructive feedback. HPP’s emphasis is on education and performance, not competition, so there are no trophies, but all performers receive a certificate for participating.   

Some of the comments about the choir’s performances which were judged to be ‘outstanding’ by the adjudicator, Heidi Fardell included “so much to celebrate in your playing as a group. You all listen and watch and create a fantastic sound! Keep playing together.” 

John Randall, Music Centres Manager for West Sussex Music, said:  

“We’re extremely proud of the flute choir and are so thrilled with everything they’ve achieved. Their five performances were utterly brilliant and were understandably well received. It’s a testament to Jo’s direction as well as the talent and hard work of the students, that they got such wonderful feedback.” 

West Sussex Flute Choir is a group run by West Sussex Music that meets at Horsham Music Centre, based at Millais School, on Saturdays.
