What a way to start Valentine's Day: listening to incredible music by professional musicians!

We were delighted to welcome The Tempest Flute Trio to Frome College, who performed a selection of exciting music from Rimsky-Korsakov to Debussy, and arrangements of contemporary pieces and jazz standards such as 'Take the A Train'.

The flautists play internationally and in The West End, and are graduates from The Guildhall and The Royal Northern School of Music. We learned about strange techniques like jet whistles and multiphonics, as well as exploring bass flutes, alto flutes and piccolos!

Following this performance, a selection of music students from Oakfield Academy, Selwood Academy and Frome College, were given a workshop by the trio focussing on an arrangement of Corelli's 'la folia'.

The students and trio will perform together at the Cheese & Grain on Tuesday 26 March at 5.30pm.

A huge thank you to Jackdaws Music Education Trust based in Great Elm for continually supporting Frome College and for organising this event.
