In the Recorder Group we aim to play music which we like, and to get better whilst we do so. We welcome new members, from a wide range of abilities, and coaching is available. Several of our members were new to the recorder, and others have returned to it for the first time since leaving primary school! The main needs are to be able to read music (the treble clef) and to have reasonably nimble hands. We have members playing the whole range of recorders from descant to bass.
In 2017 we played twice at the main U3A monthly meetings, and we also played in the “Carols for Everyone” concert in Southwell Minster. We hope to get some other invitations to provide musical entertainment in 2018. We choose our music carefully, and arrange a lot of it ourselves.
We meet twice each month, usually on the second Wednesday and fourth Thursday from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm (although in February and March 2018 it’s the first Wednesday and fourth Thursday). We’ve outgrown our previous home, and for the moment we are meeting in the Old School Room at Edingley, so there is a small charge for membership of the Group.
