What we do

We are a group of recorder players of intermediate standard and beyond which has evolved out of the former Kendal Recorder Group run by Marlene Phillips. We will be playing music, in four or more parts, ranging from Renaissance to the present day. The group will choose a series of pieces to work on each term.

. We would particularly welcome players of treble, tenor and bass instruments. Whilst some of our group can conduct, they really want to play, so we are also looking for a conductor who can keep us in time and help us interpret the music.

Reports

March 2017

We are a group of recorder players of intermediate standard and beyond playing music in four or more parts on descant, treble, tenor and bass recorders. We choose a series of pieces to work on each term and try to cater for all tastes. Our programme ranges from Renaissance to the present day.

We currently have a good range of instruments and are not actively seeking new members. However, if you are interested in joining us, please contact Jan or George for an update on the current position.
