Do you love early music?  Do you play a Baroque instrument like a recorder or a viol?

You’ve come to the right place!

Our members play recorders (soprano, alto, tenor and bass), viols, flutes, violins and other Early Instruments

  • Here’s what we can offer you:

    • A group of 25-30 amateur musicians who love to play together. Renaissance and Baroque music is our passion

    • A new professional coach at every monthly workshop. They come with fascinating musical scores and bring them alive

    • Warm harmonic sounds as we play soprano, alto, tenor and bass parts – just like a choir

    • A friendly welcome and a break for refreshments!
