Mother knows best!

michael stowe newMichael Stowe is our fabulous soloist in our  October concert playing the beautiful Strauss oboe concerto.

But it so nearly wasn’t to be – and we’ve got his mum to thank!

Michael says: I started learning the oboe when I was 10 years old. I had previously been learning the recorder and initially wanted to move on to the flute, as I knew some children at my school who learned it. I suggested this to my mum who quickly responded with “no, everyone plays the flute- learn the oboe!”

And we’re very glad she did!
