Formed in March 2010.
Note: As from June 2017, we shall meet on Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays
Objective - Primarily to have fun, to enjoy making music together.
We are of mixed musical ability with several of us only ever having played before in our primary school days, while others in the group are multi-talented and play Recorder with more than one group.
At present we have eight members and could take 2 or 3 more, the limit being on the size of our accommodation (my home).
Between us we can play a combination of anything from Sopranino to Contra Bass Recorder. However most of our music is scored for descant, treble, tenor and occasional bass recorders.
We attempt to play a wide variety of styles from Early Baroque Recorder Music to specially arranged Jazz, and some modern pieces written for the Recorder.
The emphasis is on enjoyment of playing in a group rather than perfection!
In 2011 we started a Beginners recorder group for members with no previous experience of either playing recorder or reading music but this group has now closed.
