The new Wind Recorder Group has been created to enable members to enjoy the pleasure of playing music together as a group.

They play a variety of musical styles with various combinations of parts, depending on the instruments available. There are about a dozen members at present and attendance is variable so they are very flexible, the aim being to simply enjoy ensemble playing!

Players need to know basic recorder fingering and be able to read a simple score. They bring their own instruments but there are a couple of spare descants for anyone who wishes to try a session.

The group meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month between 2pm and 4pm, usually at the coordinator's home in Wirksworth.

There is no fee but occasionally they purchase music scores.

The coordinator is Karen Hale, who can be contacted by clicking on her name or by telephone on 01629 259763.
