At 7 Helen began learning the recorder and performing in school concerts. By 14 she had taken up the clarinet and eventually studied at the Royal Academy of Music.
“My life is all about music. Whether teaching or performing. It’s important to pass on the joy that music has given me”. Helen has been MD and played in many bands, orchestras and ensembles over the last 30 years and when she’s not playing or conducting you can find her making large cardboard sculptures ….or practising!!
Sammy’s passion for music began at a young age first with learning the piano and then moving onto the saxophone. This has been her main instrument for the past 16 years. She has played at a wide range of events with several different bands including marching bands, swing bands and concert bands. More recently Sammy joined Con Brio which offers a challenging repertoire and very fun rehearsals.
Simon started playing trumpet at 12 and continued through his teenage years. He stopped to follow his other passion in life sport.. returning to play the sax that in truth was his lifetime instrument of choice.. since he has had the privilege to play in a soul band, concert bands and orchestras. Con Brio gives him the platform to share his love of the saxophone.
Having only ever played the recorder as a child but with an ambition to one day learn to play the saxophone, Sally started to play the Alto when her children were young. She joined a concert band shortly after and has never looked back. She still plays with that concert band and also with a local swing band. Listening to music has always been a big part of Sally’s life and playing music has given her even greater joy.
“Con Brio have worked with us on a number of occasions at our fine dining restaurant in Westbourne, Dorset. They have provided us with wonderful background music for our diners on a number of occasions. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
“It was an honour and privilege to have Con Brio play at our Awards Ceremony. The quartet were professional and the background music was beautifully played providing a fabulous atmosphere for people to socialise.
I hope that Con Brio will be playing at our next Awards Ceremony”
We would recommend them thoroughly!
“Con Brio played for an outdoor event held in Wimborne, after my initial approach it remained very easy for me to concentrate on the rest of the planning as they were self sufficient and very well organised, on the day they arrived, played and it was wonderful. Very professional sounding and the audience thoroughly enjoyed it.
For a quartet I would certainly recommend Con Brio, thank you again!”
