Trunch Concerts - Music in a historic Norfolk Church
First Concert in September 2017

Please note. This concert was originally advertised with both The Rocking Bishop and the Mirliton Flute Ensemble. Due to the bishop's pastoral schedule being changed at short notice, he is now indisposed on this date and we have had to bring his performance forward to August 6th. We are very grateful to the Mirliton Flute Ensemble for now presenting the whole September 2nd concert. From Sept. 30th with the evening of music for Soprano, Cello and Piano at Trunch Church, the schedule as per the printed brochure will be resumed. Thank you for your understanding.

SATURDAY   2nd  SEPTEMBER  at  7.30 pm
at St Nicholas Church, Swafield *
An Evening of Light Music

THE MIRLITON FLUTE ENSEMBLE
Director: Anna Hopkins
presents

"From Baroque to Rock"

*Since 2014 St Nicholas Swafield has come under the auspices of St Botolph’s Church Trunch. This concert will raise money for the maintenance of Swafield’s lovely but under-used church.

Anna Hopkins has performed in most seasons in recent years in the Trunch Concerts, giving solo recitals and leading ensembles, such as Norfolk Winds. She always draws a thrilled, appreciative audience with her excellent flute playing. She is the co-principal flautist of the Norwich Philharmonic Orchestra. She also leads the Mirliton Flute Ensemble, a group of seven flautists who play in the best orchestras in the county. They specialise in arrangements, often by Anna herself, of light classics, jazz standards and music from the shows. A toe-tapping ‘Tutti Flutey’ evening!
