Welcome from our 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 around 20 active players, typically playing 4+ part music on descant, treble, tenor, bass, and great bass recorders.
If you’re thinking of joining us, more information can be found on our Prospective Members’ page.
Almost from our first year, some of us have regularly been involved in public performance, for instance at Prestbury Summer Music and at Little Moreton Hall. In December 2016 you can see us at:
- Macclesfield United Reformed Church, Park Green – Christmas Tree Festival at 15.30 on Friday 9 December
- Little Moreton Hall – Christmas-themed music 11.00 – 12.45 on Sunday 11 December
Once a year, we aim to invite a Guest Conductor for a “Playing Day”, where we are able to have longer sessions learning new pieces. In April 2016 we enjoyed a day directed by Helen Hooker, and are planning a similar event for 2017.
