Meet the Woodwinds @ Casa da Moeda

On December 16, we invited the general public to come and meet our two visiting woodwind players – Stuart Potter (bassoon) and Akihide Noguchi (clarinet). We also invited our flute teacher Susan Badiyari to come along.

Both Stuart and Hide demonstrated the various parts of their instruments and how to them together.
