Flanders Recorder Quartet

The Flanders Recorder Quartet playing day / workshop in Edinburgh on Sunday 18th March is now full!  Due to very high demand, we are unable to accept any further registrations. If you have already sent a registration form and have not had an email confirmation, please contact susanwhitemusicatgmaildotcom to check.

The good news is that the FRQ concert on Saturday 17th March has been moved from St Cecilia’s Hall to a bigger venue,  St Andrews and St George’s Church in George St, Edinburgh.  Contact the Queen’s Hall box office in Edinburgh for tickets.

And more good news – we hope that Tom Beets and Joris van Goethem will be returning to Scotland in late October 2018, to lead a recorder weekend in Dollar. If you would like to be kept informed about this, please send your contact details to lrahopeatbtinternetdotcom and ask to be added to the Recorders Scotland mailing list.

Theatre Alba is looking for a descant recorder player. If they double on treble or tenor or another instrument, that would be a bonus.

Theatre Alba is putting on an Easter Passion Play at Duddingston. It’s a promenade performance in the grounds of the manse and kirk, and it also processes through the village. Richard Cherns is putting the music together. This is their third such production at Duddingston, which now happens every 5 years. Theatre Alba has mounted fringe shows every year in the Edinburgh Festival at Duddingston for perhaps 20 years now.

There is a major piece for the finale, which is amplified, where the recorder carries the melody. There are a few other pieces that may feature recorder. We’ll certainly look to weave in any instruments we have.

There’s a small fee of £80. It’s fun to do, and doesn’t require much rehearsal. It takes place on Easter Sunday with the dress rehearsal the day before.

Please contact  Richard Cherns rchernsatgmaildotcom if you are interested.
