Most of the day-today activities take place in branches of which we have over 50 across the British Isles: they meet monthly (or in some cases more often) for playing sessions, and these are an excellent opportunity to get together with fellow players and learn about the recorder, its music, opportunities to play in small groups, courses etc.
Most branches are conducted by a Musical Director or by conductors from within the branch, but also have well-known visiting conductors at some of their meetings.
In addition, some branches have other activities from time to time:
- Longer Playing Days with a well-known conductor
- Training sessions
- Playing in concerts
- Organising playing groups for young people
Organising concerts and other activities in their local community
The menu to the right has links to all of our branches, and there is also a map showing where each branch meets.
If there isn’t a branch near you, try contacting a neighbouring branch as they may know of recorder-playing in your area.
If you are interested in setting up a branch in your area, please contact the secretary of the SRP (secretarysrporguk (secretarysrporguk) ) for further information and advice.
