In search of the perfect recorder orchestra sound …

Since 2013, Joris Van Goethem and Tom Beets have held a series of one-day events for recorder, with the focus on orchestral playing.
There are 2 groups, a Chamber Orchestra and the Full Orchestra, with Joris and Tom alternating between the two. The Chamber Orchestra tackles the most difficult orchestral repertoire, one-to-a-part. The second Orchestra has a slightly less challenging repertoire and some doubling up of parts to ensure a very high standard is still achieved.

Come prepared

Participants can preview the music in advance and request their preferred parts and instruments. The final decision is with Tom and Joris, who will get in touch to allocate parts when registration is closed. You will be expected to practise your parts in advance so that everyone gets the most from the day.
