Flutes Past and Present Phyllis Clarke Thursday 27 April 2017


This will  be a return visit to the delightful Victorian schoolhouse in Oxborough, which Phyllis Clarke and her husband Martyn have restored to house their collection of musical instruments.  We are looking forward to seeing and hearing some of Phyllis's historical flutes, and tracing the instrument's evolution from its much simpler eighteenth-century antecedents to the more complex machine it is today.  She will be accompanied by Martyn on various historical keyboard instruments appropriate in date to each flute.


Phyllis is American by birth and studied flute at the University of Illinois.  She gained the Master of Music degree at the University of East Anglia and has given many recitals in England and the United States
