Highlights: Pied Pipers of Cookham


Children from 2 weeks to 3 years old and their grown ups filled the Cookham Rise Methodist Church for a varied and light-hearted programme of music for two flutes, presented by Julia Bentley-Dawkes and Victoria Dawkes and accompanied on the piano by Jean Garrett. The programme comprised music from Swan Lake, The Flower Duet by Doppler, Disney hits and popular nursery rhymes. A highlight of the concert was the performance of the lyrical I see the Light by Menken & Slater which was complemented, to the children’s delight, by floating bubbles. Some of the toddlers danced and sang, some swayed to the music and some just lay on the floor and listened. The relaxed, child friendly and happy environment created a wonderful introduction to the young audience’s first experience of live classical music.piedpiper1
