Enjoy candlelit concert at St Mary’s Church in Snettisham as Classical Music Rocks’ flautist Klio Blonz presents Reflections
People are invited to experience the delights of a candlelit concert at St Mary’s Church in Snettisham on Friday.
Classical Music Rocks’ creative director and celebrated flautist, Klio Blonz, presents Reflections, a captivating dialogue between the great Baroque masters and composers of today.
These pieces are challenging to the flautist and will create a compelling and immersive atmosphere. Be swept back in time and then find yourself transported to the present day.
Klio has been enjoying a solo and chamber music career over the years, appearing in festivals and concert series throughout the United Kingdom and abroad.
She has worked with some wonderful musicians such as Gabriella Dall’Olio, Rebecca Hepplewhite, Jane Beament, Shelley Levy, and Grace Mo. Her special interest in contemporary music has led her to give a multitude of premieres around the world, as well as to record and work with numerous composers.
Alongside her love for chamber music, she has a certain kind of ‘weakness’ for the sound of a solo instrument and thus loves to explore repertoire for solo flute, she said: “There is something very intimate and direct in the sound of a solo instrument and touches the listener in a very special way”.
Parallel to her work as a performing musician she is very passionate about her educational work and most specifically about her work as creative director for Classical Music Rocks (CMR). CMR is a unique Norfolk charity founded by a local man, Peter Barker in 2016. The aim is to bring live classical music to children in schools and to reach the whole community through low-cost concerts. They are funded by the Postcode Places Trust, The Foyle Foundation, Norfolk Music Hub, the Prince of Wales Charitable Fund, and private donors.
So come along and celebrate CMR’s seven-year anniversary in style with a concert taking place on Friday, October 13 at St. Mary’s Church in Snettisham, starting at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 on the door, including a glass of wine or juice.
The concert is free for those who are under 21.
Alternatively, you can pre-book via the Corn Exchange Box Office (01553 764864).
