Concert&Cakes

2.30pm Saturday, 17 February 2018

All Saints Church, Burton in Lonsdale, LA6 3JU

Concert&Cakes

Concert&Cakes is an hour of beautiful music by musicians from the Royal Northern College of Music followed by an invitation to meet the performers afterwards, whilst enjoying delicious home-made cakes, tea and coffee.

This month, we can't wait to welcome the multi-talented Chameleon Wind Quintet who will amaze and delight with a programme in which each member performs on multiple instruments, often within the same piece!

Chameleon Wind Quintet

Formed in October 2016, Chameleon is a group of musicians who met at the RNCM in Manchester. United by their ability to double/triple, they formed a group whereeach member performs on multiple instruments, often within the same piece.

As there is no existing repertoire for Chameleon, we do our own arrangements (though we would love to collaborate with orchestrators/arrangers/composers for future projects!). This means we can push the boundaries of typical wind ensembles, and can experiment with new combinations of wind instruments.

We base our set-up on a traditional wind quintet, replacing French Horn with Saxophone, and each member is principally one of the other four instruments - Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon. Our unique range of doubling instruments also means we can transform from a wind quintet to a sax group during a piece.

We have a keen interest in performance and outreach, bringing our music to other people in both the concert hall and in the community.
