|June Emerson Wind Music, Windmill Farm|
It was a blustery day up at Windmill Farm, but we were very pleased to welcome a steady stream of customers, some of whom had travelled quite a distance to visit us for the first time.
Among the first-time visitors was a group of six friendly and enthusiastic young players who make up part of Blow Me Down Woodwinds (www.blowmedownwoodwinds.co.uk) – an organisation run by Caroline Leak, dedicated to providing playing and performing opportunities for young woodwind players in Lincolnshire. They had recently been awarded a grant and were looking for lots of new repertoire, so they all made the 2 and a half hour trip to arrive for 10.30am, finally leaving with 2 big boxes of sheet music at 3.30pm! They’d brought their instruments along and treated us to a play-through of many of our flexible ensemble titles.
Other visitors had travelled from as far as Leicester, Nottingham, Harrogate and Hull.
Our next Open Day will be on Saturday 14th January 2012, weather permitting…
