- Debussy - Syrinx for solo flute
- Honegger - Danse de la Chevre for solo flute

The Divertimento Flute Quartet comprises Judith Hall - flute, Mary Eade - violin, Andrew Gillett - viola and Vicky Evans - cello.
Judith Hall is one of Britain’s most highly-acclaimed flautists:
“a truly magic flute” The Gramophone
“playing which quite touched the soul” The Daily Telegraph
“highly gifted” The Guardian
“gamin charm” The Financial Times
“an almost uncanny knack with colour” The Times
Judith began her career as Principal Flute with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and has since developed an international solo career.
Her CDs have received the highest ratings in Penguin Guides, and one was for a time fifth in the list of best-selling Classical CDs in Britain, as well as being chosen by the BBC for “Building a Library”.
As well as broadcasting a large amount of the flute repertoire for the BBC, she has been featured artist on programmes including Kaleidoscope, Tuning Up and Woman’s Hour.
In 2008 she was featured artist in the Blafrostfestivalen in Norway, and has since performed with guitarist Craig Ogden in the Newbury Spring Festival, Ryedale, Budleigh Salterton and Salisbury International Festivals, among many others, as well as appearing as concerto soloist throughout the South West.
Tea, coffee and award-winning Sharpham wine is available in the interval.
Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything.
It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form
This event runs from 7.30pm to 9pm.
Arrival from 7pm.
This event takes place in beautiful Grade 1-listed Sharpham House.
