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.
TUTOR: Geoff Parr-Smith is an experienced player and group leader, who
has been playing recorders for some 35 years. He has attended workshops
with many of Australia’s leading recorder players. He plays in the Ballarat
U3A Recorder Group and the Ballarat U3A Celtic Band. He has also taught
beginners’ recorder groups, and has taught a class in “Reading music for
musicians who can’t”.
