Saturday March 30, 7.30pm-9pm
IF YOU think of recorders only in the squeaky descant version pulverised by primary school children, Hampshire Recorder Sinfonia is offering a chance to change your views.
Ahead of its regular Festival of Chichester concert later in the year, the sinfonia will be holding an Open Practice at St Paul’s Church, in Chichester to try out the acoustic and would welcome an audience to assist with this.
HRS is a 40-strong recorder orchestra featuring seven sizes of recorder, from the tiny sopranino to the massive contrabass.
For anyone interested in hearing a recorder orchestra, this is a great opportunity – just drop in at any point and stay as long you wish. There’s no charge and visitors will be given a complimentary copy of one of the group’s CDs.
