In the cold and lonely winter of 2013, Sophie Brewer and Ruth Molins decided to meet up to play flute duets. After afew weeks Jennifer Campbell joined us and started arranging all our favourite tunes especially for us! FLUTE CAKE was born! Since then we have taken our Flute Cake magic to stately homes, community halls, churches, concert venues, fields, streets, tents, nursing homes, libraries, birthdays, funerals, weddings and parties all over Devon.
"It was like listening to an intimate conversation, I've never heard flutes sound like that!"
"Thanks for the great music you played at our wedding, it gave the reception a really good atmosphere." - Chris and Catherine
Sophie Brewer spent 6 1/2 years in Arts Management before moving to an Office Manager position for a local consultant engineering company. She claims that the 9-5 job is there to fund the otherwise penniless existence of a musician. Since childhood Sophie has led a very musical life, being involved in award winning ensembles, receiving music scholarships for specialist music schools and performing in small and large scale concerts across the globe. She studied music at Exeter University, and continues to study flute with Judith Hall, achieving distinction in her LTCL diploma. Sophie continues to perform locally on both flute and violin both as a soloist and as part of various orchestras and groups including principal flute in Exeter Symphony Orchestra where she is also the librarian and social media coordinator.
"A wonderful mix of classical, folk, and film music. The audience loved them!" - Bampton Fair
"I loved your playing, you took me away to a different place for a while."
Jennifer Campbell is an instrument technician for the Devon Music Service. She can mostly be found either taking instruments apart or playing them in theatre pits across the South West. Jennifer lives in Cullompton and plays with various ensembles in Devon & Somerset including Exeter Music Group and the Taunton-based saxophone octet Reed Rage. She also helps with local Kentisbeare Children’s Orchestra where she sits with the woodwind section and hopefully manages to offer encouragement and inspiration to upcoming young players! She arranges 99% of our repertoire for us.
