The National Youth Recorder Orchestras are promoted by the Society of Recorder Players to demonstrate the highest quality of youth orchestral performance and its equivalence to other national instrumental youth orchestras.

Young people who maintain their interest in recorder playing after moving to Secondary School and beyond can find like-minded young players in our organisation. You can study with professional tutors and conductors at the Easter and Summer residential courses and at regular Recorder Days around the country. You will benefit from expert tuition covering all aspects of technique and interpretation during sectional and orchestral rehearsals.

An audition is required for entry to the Summer Course, which culminates in a public concert and a professional recording.

For the Easter Course and the Recorder Days an examination certificate and/or an assessment certified by a teacher will be accepted. These courses end with an informal concert - family and friends are welcome to attend.

You can also keep in touch with each other and with us through our Facebook and Twitter groups.
