Macclesfield Branch


Contact Information

Secretary: Jean Boler


Musical Director: Jane Duff

Having played the recorder from the age of six years, I have had a lifelong love of the instrument and renaissance/baroque music in particular.

With over thirty years’ experience as a music teacher, it gives me great pleasure to direct an SRP branch.

We welcome new members. Currently the branch, which was founded in March 2013, has 14 active players, typically playing 4+ part music on descant, treble, tenor and bass recorders.

Prestbury Recorder Summer Concert

On Sunday, 27 July 2014 we will be playing our first concert at St Peter’s Church, Prestbury, Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK10 4DG. The concert starts at 3pm and will last for about 45 minutes. Admission is free (donations in aid of charity and church). Afternoon tea is available at Prestbury Village Hall after the concert. Please check out the programme, which ranges from ranging from dances by Praetorius to Gabrieli Canzonas, Purcell’s Dioclesian to very well know favourites such as Bach’s Jesu Joy and The Music for the Royal Fireworks by Händel, and support us by coming along. If you can’t make the concert please come back to listen to us playing. Clips of the recording will be available in early August
