Sight-reading evenings take place approximately once per month. There are around 8 sessions every season. 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. Signing up as a member gives access to all the sight-reading evenings, and nonmembers can join the sight-readings but will be charged a fee.
Each sight-reading evening is directed by a different professional musician. The music sheets are distributed at the beginning of the evening. 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. StartIng in 2017-2018, we will also have a theory workshop, intended to enhance the practical instruction given in the ensemble sessions.
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.
