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.
We have performed from time to time at the National Trust’s Little Moreton Hall both at Christmas and to support events such as Maypole dancing.
.On 18 July 2017 we gave a lunch time concert at St Peter’s Church, Congleton (pictured below in this section), and we performed on 30 July as part of Prestbury Summer Music in Prestbury Parish Church.
We also have an Annual Playing Day with a visiting conductor. In May 2017 we welcomed Andrew Challinger, and our guest in 2018 will be Alyson Lewin. These days enable us to experience new repertoire and interpretation.
You can hear the standard we aspire to (and – on a good day – attain!) in these audio clips:
