Press Report

This year’s group of students from the Junior Royal Northern College of Music captivated the audience at the Middlewich and District Concerts Society concert in the manner to which we have become accustomed. David Jones provided piano accompaniment throughout.

Ruby Howells (16) is the British Flute Society’s Young Performer 2018 and she amply justified this accolade with brilliant performances of the Concerto in D by Stamitz, and the Flute Concertino by Cécile Chaminade.

Amelia Stuart (12) showed great technique and commitment on the flugelhorn in Concierto de Aranjuez (Rodrigo), and on the trumpet in variations on The Ash Grove. For one so young the potential was clear for all to see.

Nick Broughton (17) demonstrated what could be achieved with the double bass with compelling performances of the Cimador Double Bass Concerto, and “Après un Rêve” by Fauré in the first half; followed after the interval by Kicho (Piazzolla), and “The Elephant” from “Carnival of the Animals” (Saint-Saëns).

The singer this year was Glyn Webster. He sang with commendable clarity, beginning with an emotional performance of “Is My Team Ploughing?” by Butterworth. He continued with “Stimme Der Nacht” (Herzogenberg) and “La Danza” by Rossini. After the interval he gave us “The Choirmaster’s Burial” (Britten), “Silent Noon” (Vaughn Williams) and “Memphis in June” (Hoagy Carmichael) .
