London Recorder Orchestra

LROpic

The London Recorder Orchestra currently has over 40 members but always welcomes new players of an appropriate standard.  Prospective members should have a good standard of playing and sight-reading – and be prepared to play any of the usual sizes of recorder (descant, treble, tenor or bass) as required. Players of larger instruments (great bass and contrabass recorders) are particularly welcome.

For more information about playing standards required etc, please contact Joanna Brown

The orchestra normally rehearses from 10.30am – 1pm on the second Saturday of each month. Rehearsals are held at Macaulay School, Victoria Rise, Clapham, London SW4 and members are asked to pay a modest annual subscription of £40 (£17.50 students) to cover the hire of the hall.

Here is a full list of rehearsal dates for the 2017/18 season;

LRO2017

We usually give a concert at the end of each season (June/July). The music we play covers a wide range of styles and includes both ‘in house’ arrangements and original compositions. Sometimes we invite other groups to perform in the concert – either on their own or with the orchestra. If you are interested in seeing us in action, you will be very welcome at our next concert! You can also visit our Facebook Page.

Our last concert was at 7.00pm on Saturday 24th June 2017 at St Matthew’s Church, 29 St Petersburgh Place, London W2 4LA.

The programme included:

Spanish Lustspiel Overture – B Keler

Octet-Partita – Krommer

Celtic Lament – N Rawsthorne

Tickets £10.00 (concessions £6.00) will be available at the door and include interval refreshments.

For those of you who missed it, you can hear a couple of items from the concert on our  Facebook Page.
