On this day in 1791 Mozart’s Opera The Magic Flute premiered in Vienna. The flute referred to in the title is a golden flute given to one of the opera’s heroes, Tamino, to protect him and help him in his search for the Princess Pamina who has been kidnapped. This magic flute has the power to turn sorrow into joy, something that Anne and Kirstie in the MfE office do every time they pick up their flutes!
Speaking of amazing instruments, check out this impressive organisation who work to promote the use of adapted instruments for people who face physical disability. From one-handed clarinets, to cellos that can be played with the feet only. Mind blown! https://www.ohmi.org.uk
