Society of Recorder Players
Richard Lindsay BA(Hons), LGSM
Secretary: Rod Callow
lively group of friendly recorder enthusiasts - drawn from
all over the area - who meet once a month on Saturday
afternoons from 13.00 to 15.30 in a venue near the middle of
Lincoln. (As the afternoon is quite concentrated we usually
stop for a cup of tea of coffee and biscuits in the middle
and this provides some time to chat as well).
All are welcome,
members and non members alike.
afternoon is stimulating
and demands concentration but the group is
warm and friendly and welcoming to new members and everyone is keen to be
helpful and encouraging to all players – even those of us who are not as
proficient as some of the best players – and there are some very good players
In other words the group is made up of a wide
variety of individuals with different levels of ability but provides the
opportunity for everyone to advance from the point where they start in the
play a wide variety of music drawn from many centuries and styles and with
different levels of difficulty. All recorder players beyond the beginner stage
are welcome, with scope for all sizes of instruments from sopranino to the
the main meetings, from 10.30
onwards , there is an informal session for
those who wish to take part but remember to bring your lunch! Both sessions
provide an opportunity to meet other recorder players and to make music with
like minded people.
members are involved in a variety of other recorder groups and activities and
are keen to welcome others to join in these groups also. They are spread
throughout the area at different venues and we attempt where possible to share
transport to attend both Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire branch meetings and
other SRP occasions including the SRP National Festival.
branch subscription includes membership of the
and the quarterly recorder magazine.
