Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the only activities planned for fall 2021 are ensemble practices, and if possible, a Christmas party. No other activities are yet planned for the 2021-2022 season.
Sight-reading evenings take place approximately once per month. There are around 8 sessions every season. Each sight-reading evening is directed by a different professional musician. The music sheets are distributed at the beginning of the evening. These activities are open to those with some experience with sight-reading and playing in an ensemble, and who can play at least two different recorders, equivalent to Intermediate II. Some sight-readings are open to all levels.
One of the sight-readings during the season is replaced by an Interpretation workshop. For this activity, the music sheets are available approximately two months in advance.
The Conductor for an Evening activity is an additional sight-reading activity directed by the members who would like to try out directing a musical piece. It is also the occasion to share your music if you are an amateur composer.
A theory workshop is also offered. It is intended to enhance the practical instruction given in the ensemble sessions.
Signing up as a member gives access to all the sight-reading evenings, and non members can join the sight-readings but will be charged a fee.
