Adult Groups:

Recorder Consort - once a month

The recorder consort plays some beautiful classic recorder repertoire as well as some interesting pices from other genres.An intermediate group with a focus to work on pieces and develop a superb sound as a group.


Medieval Ensemble - once a month

The medieval ensemble continues to be a delight - especially with the addition of a cellos. Mostly for flutes and recorders - playing early medieval music. The emphasis of this group is on having a really enjoyable time playing beautiful but easy music. All welcome - easy level.


Childrens Groups: 

So far - the groups have been arranged on a project basis - so rather than a weekly commitment - rehearsals have been arranged depending on the project. 

In the groups - with simple arrangements - kids play the larger and very beautiful recorders easily. 


For those who thought recorders were just little shrill sounding instruments - have a listen to these clips:
