Nicola Woodward – Flutes by Candle light – 8pm
'What the Silence taught me' is a collection of enchanting flute music that I discovered or performed for the first time during lockdown. I am delighted to finally play this music live, by candle light, in a beautiful venue, with all proceeds going to UNHCR and refugees who really deserve our support.
Nicola Woodward studied flute and piano jointly at the Royal College of Music where she won the Eve Kisch Flute prize and several prizes for all-round musicianship. She has performed at the Wigmore Hall, Purcell rooms and live on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3. Nicola toured in South America for the British Council, worked with the LPO and Bournemouth orchestras and regularly entertained HRH the Prince of Wales and guests at Highgrove and Buckingham Palace. She spent many rewarding years touring the UK with the esteemed ‘Live Music Now! scheme and now is involved as a mentor.
Nicola’s love of folk music has led to recordings of folk-influenced repertoire from the UK, flamenco and trad Irish music. Nicola believes that live music should be accessible to absolutely everyone; she is co-founder of the Rockhampton Folk Festival; a small and lively festival with a huge outreach sector.
Her recording of the Koechlin ‘Chants de Nectaire’ trilogy, 96 pieces for unaccompanied flute, recently won Guardian ‘Classical CD of the week.
