About the musicians:
Bruce Burbidge began his study of the piano in Canada with Rick Pritchard and continued in England with Rowan Otaki. He now performs mostly as an accompanist, alongside teaching philosophy and playing the organ.
Rowena Bass trained as a harpist at the Royal College of Music and is skilfully able to combine a professional orchestral and chamber music career with her role as a Church of England vicar.
Deirdre Culloty studied the flute at the Royal Northern College of Music in her home city of Manchester with Trevor Wye, and with Clare Southworth. She is involved now in local music, particularly with the City of Peterborough Symphony Orchestra.
Bruce, Rowena and Deirdre have been playing together for several years and enjoy exploring the possibilities offered by their combination of instruments. Today’s programme presents a typically varied selection.
