โ„น๏ธ About

The Double Reeds ensemble is an unauditioned group which enables oboists and bassoons to play together. Rehearsals are great fun, learning new repertoire to be performed in our concerts. We play a mix of music from standard classical repertoire such as Handel to arrangements of our favourite films and TV themes. We also enjoy playing arrangements which include the Cor Anglais. We regularly have socials outside of rehearsal times, including our Christmas meal last year which gave us the opportunity to get to know each other better. We hope to see some new players in September!

I am a second year Music Student and I play Oboe, Cor Anglais, Violin and Piano. I really can’t wait to be part of the Artistic Committee this year and I am very excited to actually get back to in-person rehearsals and to play as a group, plus playing in live concerts again with an actual audience listening in the same room! I am so excited to get stuck in this year with all of you and make some great music!!
