About the group

The aim of the Recorder Group is to share the pleasure of making music together.  Members are mutually encouraging and everyone’s contribution is valued. We learn and laugh a lot!

The Recorder Group has developed into two groups which meet consecutively. The first group includes players who are less experienced, and other players who wish to develop their skills on a second instrument from the recorder range.  The later group includes moderately and more experienced players and there is an overlap of experience between the groups. Some players choose to play in both groups but on different instruments.  Once a month the group combines into a large ensemble under the leadership of a very experienced mentor and conductor.  There may also be occasional opportunities for complete beginners to form an informal induction group preparatory to joining the early group.

 Both groups have players with a wide range of musical knowledge and experience. Both groups have players of descant, treble, tenor and bass instruments and play an eclectic variety of music from baroque to contemporary.  We have a small collection of instruments for loan to members and a growing library of suitable music.

In addition to the enjoyment of playing together we have performed occasionally at a range of venues during the year and hope to return to this post Covid.
