The Victorian Recorder Guild (VRG) is a network of recorder enthusiasts - players, performers and teachers - that encourages the playing and performance of recorders.
30th June; 10am to 4pm at Spensley Street Primary School, Clifton Hill
It is proposed to work with preformed ensembles that wish to be tutored in particular compositions that they have been studying together. Newly formed and established ensembles of all standards welcome.
The idea is not to present new music on the day but that each ensemble presents pieces already studied. The notes have been learned and then we can help with more musical ideas concerned with style, appropriate articulation, ornamentation and tuning.
The end of the workshop will bring the ensembles together for a short Show and Tell concert and Dolce Ombre will also present a couple of works from the renaissance to the present day. A special treat will be a performance of a new work by ensemble member Ryan Williams.
Sunday 22nd July 1 pm to 4 pm. Venue: High Street Road Uniting Church, 482 High Street Road, Mt Waverley A soiree is being organised by Liz Zetzmann. Groups and individuals, who wish to actively participate should contact the organiser by sending an email to the Guild, who will forward your email to Liz Zetzmann. The Melbourne Recorder Orchestra will be performing music commissioned by the Guild in memory of Colin Smith.
4 to 7 October 2018 Details will be added as they are decided. But put the dates in your diary now!
