On Saturday evening I performed in a very special concert - my last one as a member of the Phoenix Recorder Orchestra. I've played with the orchestra for a decade now but since we moved to Essex the long journey to and from rehearsals (a round trip of at least six hours) has become increasingly frustrating. After much thought I decided, reluctantly, that the time had come to seek some playing nearer to home. At the end of the concert the orchestra presented me with some wonderful gifts - a beautiful bouquet of flowers, some photography gift tokens and this gorgeous pendant featuring, naturally, a phoenix. It's been an unforgettable experience playing with this wonderful group of musicians and I will miss our monthly rehearsals and concerts terribly but at least I can remember them all every time I wear this beautiful necklace.
