Victorian Recorder Guild


Myrniong Recorder Weekend 2017

Thursday evening 5 October to Sunday afternoon 8 October

Lake Dewar Lodge, Myrniong

The residential Myrniong Recorder Weekend 2017 is a three-day festival of music-making, providing an excellent opportunity to make music together over an more extended time. At Myrniong we have playing groups led by experienced tutors, Special Sessions covering a range of topics, an excellent concert given by our tutors and the opportunity to play together in a recorder orchestra.

For further information about the VRG's Myrniong Recorder Weekend 2017 please contact us on our email with any further questions.

The registration detail will be provided here in the near future.

Lake Dewar is the Guild's established and much-loved retreat, about an hour's drive west of Melbourne, on the way to Ballarat. It is set in 250 acres of bushland, and the auditorium and the main building overlook the lake, which provides a peaceful atmosphere.

Accommodation at Lake Dewar Lodge is generally in comfortable shared rooms for two to four paticipants. Bathroom facilities are shared with easy access from every room. If you have special needs you may request a smaller room or one of a few rooms with en suite facilities when you submit your Participation Information Form closer to the weekend. There will be an extra charge for single rooms unless required for medical reasons. Lakeview Apartments accommodate 3 or more participants per unit and have en suite facilities. Family groups taking advantage of the weekend to enjoy a holiday will be given priority for these units.

For residential participants, all meals are included. If you attend as a day participant, lunch and morning and afternoon teas are included. Local wine is available from the dining room before the evening meals.
