Monday 9th July sees the premiere of Boojum for Bassoon and Orchestra by Kelvin Thomson.  Boojum for solo bassoon and orchestra was initiated by prize-winning bassoonist, 18-year old Joshua Wilson with the support of Enfield Arts Support Services. The government’s new document The Importance of Music-A National Plan for Music Education (Nov 2011) underlines a welcome revitalization of the importance of music to the development of young people.

 

  

The general character of Boojum for Bassoon and Orchestra was suggested by Lewis Carroll’s enigmatic nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark.

But oh, beamish nephew, beware of the day,

If your Snark be a Boojum! For then

You will softly and suddenly vanish away,

And never be met with again!

(From The Hunting of the Snark, Lewis Carroll (1876).

Monday 9th July 2012, 7.30pm Enfield Grammar School
