Margaret Cookhorn

On Thursday, 20 November, the woodwind of KES/KEHS Symphony Orchestra worked with CBSO principal contrabassoonist, Margaret Cookhorn.  Also a member of BCMG, Margaret is one of the leading national exponents of the instrument, both in ensembles and as a concerto soloist. She also plays the heckelphone.

As part of the ensemble’s preparations for the Christmas Concerts, this was an invaluable opportunity.
