We were delighted to see one-handed recorders on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in March, performing 'This World of Ours' as part of Wandsworth Music's annual showcase 'A Brighter Sound 2023'. The sell-out concert involved around 1,650 students from schools across the borough and partner organisations, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and National Opera Studio. It covered everything from opera to jazz to musical theatre and rock and pop, plus a new composition 'This World is Ours' highlighting the risks of climate change - and featuring two one-handed recorders on stage.
We think this may have been a first at the Royal Albert Hall, but hope it won't be the last time to see OHMI instruments featuring in such a prestigious venue.
