Soloists delight audience with third concert

A THIRD soloists’ concert was presented by instrumental teacher Jeannette Owen at Alcombe Methodist Church.
The performers, ranging in age from nine to 17 years, were invited to the once-a-term event to reward them for their hard work, and to present certificates and give them the experience of performing before an audience.
Pupils taking part were Phoebe Baker, Stephanie Fox and Yolita Di Filippo (piano solos), Lauren Paviour (recorder solo), Felicity Midgley (clarinet solo), Holly Green, Ellie Stone and Maddie Wells (flute solos) and Abi Owen (viola solo), with a trio for flute, clarinet and saxophone played by Jeannette, Wilf and Abi Owen.
The programme included items such as Party Piece: Colin Hand, Largo: Loeilet, Pink Lady: Wedgwood, Fur Elise: Beethoven, and Meditation: Bloch.
Featuring in the concert for the first time was the Minehead Senior Flute Choir, directed by Jeannette Owen, with lively performances of Concertos 1, 2 and 3: Molter.
The choir members were Jessica Chaffey, Gemma Coles, Charlotte Dean, Rosie Gubb, Sophie Lintern, Abigail Munson, Ellie Stone, and Maddie Wells, accompanied by Wilf Owen on bassoon and Jeannette Owen on piano.
Music critic Eileen Ann Moore said: “They were all absolutely delightful, a credit to their parents and their teacher.
“It is good to see so many young people committed to their music, and it was easy to see why they were all invited to take part.”
