“The North Queensland Recorder Society was established in 1995 to bring together all recorder players in the Townsville and wider North Queensland region for skills development (through workshops, etc) and social playing.
Its large-group activities have settled into a pattern of about four 'Playdays' - themed Sunday afternoon playing sessions - each year plus an annual weekend residential workshop with an out-of-town tutor. Guest tutors for the workshops have included Zana Clarke, Genevieve Lacey, Peter Madge, Jessica Shaw, Rodney Waterman and Ruth Wilkinson.
The society also encourages formation of amateur consorts, maintains a library of recorder music, and produces a newsletter. Individual members of the Society appear with performing groups such as “The Telemann Ensemble” which feature recorders.” Visit website for more information. (ed.)
