Introducing ‘The Bardi Interviews’, a new series of musical conversations with people close to the Bardi. Each guest will choose eight pieces of music and discuss their choices, and other topics, with former BBC Radio Leicester presenter, and long-time supporter of the orchestra, Dr John Florance.
Musical organisations have been engaging with players and audiences in a variety of ways during the long lockdown period when we have been unable to perform. Bardi Players got together for a socially distanced workshop day last autumn but further planned activities were curtailed by the spring lockdown. We decided to get to know some of Bardi’s people better by recording our own version of ‘Desert Island Discs’.
