Cornucopia is a French horn quartet made up of professional players from Hampshire and Dorset. Fiona Brockhurst, Bridget Holton, Ieuan Davies and David Ansell have a wealth of experience between them and have all played and taught in a huge variety of places and groups, ranging from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and as a warm up act for the Bachelors !
As you would expect, they frequently meet up in various combinations to play in orchestras and chamber groups.
They started playing as a quartet for fun in informal settings 5 or 6 years ago. Their debut public performance was in fact in the bandstand in the Dorchester Borough Gardens.
Finding they had a good chemistry within the group, the players decided to look at performing more conventional concerts.
Their repertoire includes pieces written specifically for the horn quartet, arrangements of popular tunes together with some old favourites in new guises.
Cornucopia can present concerts with different themes such as “An Evening with .. “,
“The Best Instrument Ever – how the horn came to be! “, “Horns at Christmas “ etc
The players passion shines through the group’s strapline
