Big Flute Challenge: This is a 12 month warning to “get your flute on” . For the last two years the Big Flute Challenge has been held at The Whitla Hall, Queens University Belfast. This is a massive charity event supporting Marie Curie Hospice NI and The Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice. The event is for flautists of all ages and abilities and there is an annual challenge to try and enter the Guinness book of records for the largest tin whistle performance. Get practising and use your instrument to help others.

In the video below we see Ruth Montgomery playing an excerpt from Carmen. Ruth is an acclaimed performer and has worked with some of the best orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic and the Russian National Orchestra. These achievements are impressive for any musician, but for Ruth her success is even more astonishing as she was born profoundly deaf. Ruth writes a blog on music related topics and spreads knowledge and experiences with other deaf artists in the community.
