the London Recorder Orchestra
The London Recorder Orchestra usually has 30-40 members but always welcomes new players. Prospective members should have a good standard of playing and sight-reading and be prepared to play any of the usual sizes of recorder (descant, treble, tenor or bass) as required. Players of larger instruments (great bass and contrabass recorders) are particularly welcome.
For more information about playing standards required etc, please contact Joanna Brown
The orchestra normally rehearses from 10.30am - 1pm on the second Saturday of each month. Rehearsals are held at Macaulay School, Victoria Rise, Clapham, London SW4 and members are asked to pay a modest annual subscription of £33 (£15 students) to cover the hire of the hall.
