“There is more Wit in a Fiery Dragon than in all the plays in Europe”
James Ralph, The Fashionable Lady, 1728.
We are pleased to announce that as of January 2018 the Fiery Dragon Company is now a group of five musicians (piano, flute, violin, concertina and oboe) who perform the music of their leader Anne Gregson.
Their inaugural performance will be as part of Bath’s Party in the City on May 18th 2018 where they will perform pieces in which church bells form part of the ensemble. The performance will take place at 7.00pm outside St John the Evangelist church, South Parade, Bath BA2 4AF.
The musicians in the Company are
- Helen Bousfield flute and concertina
- Anne Gregson violin and concertina
- Bianca Janossy oboe and cor anglais
- Kyle Thornhill violin
- Katharine Tylko keyboard and recorder
Much more will appear here about the group soon but in the meantime you can read about the earlier incarnation of the Fiery Dragon in the form of the Fiery Dragon Folk Opera Company. They came together in 2012 and again in 2014 to perform Anne Gregson’s opera Make Room For Mummers and you can read all about this on the Opera menu tab.
