Other information

We play a range of three- and four-part music, from medieval to modern, including some Celtic folk music, with an emphasis on 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: This is a playing group for recorder players with some level of ability and experience.
