Dexterity Trio at St. Peter Mancroft Church

On Saturday 29th June 2013 I attended the Dexterity Trio Summer Recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich which was the last in this season's Mancroft Music Summer Recital Series. The Dexterity Trio are Anna Hopkins - flute, Maja Passchier - cello and David Morgan - piano.

Anna Hopkins studied for four years at the Royal College of Music. She is a private and peripatetic flute teacher and is also an examiner for London's Trinity College. Maja Passchier studied cello at the Utrecht Conservatoire. She now lives in Norwich and teaches cello in schools and privately. David Morgan was a lecturer of music at Norwich City College and he was Organist at St. Edmunds, Acle.

The programme consisted of Trio No.28 in D major - Haydn, Trio Op.36 - Steel and Trio on English Folk Songs - Rowley. They were due to play Sonate en Concert - Damase but played pieces by Elgar, Faure and Mendelssohn instead. The Dexterity Trio told us they would play Sonate en Concert at a later date.

This was a wonderful recital at St. Peter Mancroft Church which proved to be a fantastic finish to this Summer's Recital Series. This has been another successful series for Mancroft Music as yet again they have provided the people of Norwich with lots of splendid music.
