Helen Hooker on the METRO

Inspired by a group at the recent recorder orchestra weekend course in Biggleswade Helen Hooker is planning a new venture, the Mellow Tones Recorder Orchestra (METRO for short).  This will be a recorder orchestra which utilises the larger sizes of recorder, from the humble tenor right down to the imposing subcontrabass, to play a mix of arrangements of music from the last thousand years and original repertoire.

At the moment plans for METRO are in their formative stages but the plan is for the group to meet somewhere in the Hertfordshire area, close to the motorway network for ease of access, for a day, no more than four times a year.  The cost of joining METRO will be modest and players of intermediate level and above will be very welcome.  

If you like the sound of METRO and would like to receive further information about dates, venue and costs as plans become firmer please complete the form on Helen’s website, and Helen will add you to the mailing list.
