Fontanella’s winter season 2013-14 kicks off with a trip to beautiful Steyning, in West Sussex on Sunday 24th November, to perform music from across the centuries for the very welcoming Steyning Music Society.

In December we are heading up to the Huntingdon Hall in Worcester, where our popular programme ‘Pastime with Good Company’ gets a festive twist! We are also working with members of the local recorder-playing community in a special workshop before the concert, so do sign up if you would like to work with us that day!

And warming up a chilly January, the ensemble will be taking a trip down to Andover Concert Club on Thursday 23rd January performing music by Byrd, Dowland, Purcell, JS Bach and Kosma.

We’d love to see you this season!

Fontanella are looking forward to the premiere of two new works in the Summer 2013 season.

On Monday June 24th, the ensemble will perform a new work for Paetzold basses by Tim Coker at Ardingly ArtsFest, with guest recorder player, Susanna Borsch

On Saturday 17th August, they will appear in Binham Priory in north Norfolk, playing a new work by Finnish composer, Tomi Raisanen

Fontanella on ZingZillas

Fontanella in 'The Glade'

Much to the delight of many of our friends all over the UK with young children, Fontanella appeared on the BBC CBeebies’ music show ZingZillas for the first time on 25th January 2012.

Their performance of Anthony Holborne’s The Fairie-Round on their Tudor recorder consort, and the specially composed Tiny and Tall song has inspired many of the UK’s youngest recorder players to keep practising!

The Episode, Tiny and Tall airs regularly on the Cbeebies channel. More information here.
