We play a range of three and four part music, from medieval to modern, including some Celtic folk music, with an emphasis of the renaissance and baroque. We play as a led consort, with recorder sizes from Soprano to Contrabass. The group presented two concerts in 2019, and further concerts are anticipated. We aim to maintain a high standard of musicality and to improve our playing technique, working at a standard to match the competence of the group.
REQUIREMENTS: Must have experience playing recorder or be transferring from another musical instrument. Please call Geoff on 0409 257 578 if you are thinking of enrolling in this group for the first time.
NOTE: The consort is enrolled as a member of the Victorian Recorder Guild.
