Romanesca Recorders is a chamber recorder ensemble, comprising graduates from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Since completing their studies, the players have pursued freelance music careers, specialising in music education, performance and community music. Today’s trio comprises Clare Murphy, Gabriella Passerini and Emily-May Roebuck, who will be performing a range of music from the 16th century up to the present day to reflect a cross section of the recorder’s colourful history.

Admission is free, with a retiring collection at the end of the concert.
Berry’s Coffee House will provide tea, coffee and home-made biscuits after the concert, with proceeds going to Mayfair.
