Fundraising

We are actively seeking help with fundraising, so if you have some expertise in the field and could spare some time for us, we'd be very pleased to hear from you!

Send an email to admin@nyro.org.uk and we'll put you in touch with the Chair of the Trustees.

Easter Course

This is a relaxed course, including technique and beginner bass classes as well as chamber music and recorder orchestra sessions. No audition is required.

As there is no audition requirement, this is the perfect starting point for younger and less experienced players as well as providing playing challenges for the more able. During the course, players will be split into smaller groups according to their playing ability. There will also be sessions when everyone plays together.

For players who live locally or have less experience of residential courses, there is a day student option at a lower cost. Players wishing to take this option will arrive in time for the first morning session and return to their families after the evening playing. Lunch and an evening meal are included in the cost.

Age: 10 to 21 on the 1st of April. (Younger players of the required standard may be considered; contact the NYRO Administrator to discuss your application.)

Auditions for the Summer Course may be booked to be taken at the Easter course.
On the last day there will be a short concert for family and friends. No tickets are necessary.

The cost covers musical tuition, accommodation, all course activities and the loan of music and instruments in some cases. Travel costs to and from the course are not included.

Remember, if you think you cannot afford the fees, help may be possible. For example, the Society of Recorder Players has the SRP Walter Bergmann Fund to assist young recorder players. Early application is advisable.

Future Courses

Summer Course

Our annual residential Summer Course is a week long, with our full complement of conductors, tutors and house staff, concluding with a public concert and professional recording.

Play with other talented young recorder players in either NYTRO, our training orchestra, or NYRO, the main orchestra, and additionally the full orchestra combining all players. The most advanced players will be invited to play in BlockWork, the one-to-a-part ensemble. All players take part in daily technique sessions and chamber music. Entry is by audition.

House staff, including at least one qualified first-aider, will be in attendance 24 hours a day to look after the well-being of the players. All staff are subject to DBS checks in line with our Safeguarding policy.

Age: 10 to 25 on the 1st September in the year of the course.

Standard: NYTRO is intended for players of a good grade 5 standard and above, and ages 10 to 16: progression to NYRO is entirely dependent on annual audition, however players of exceptional skills for their age may be promoted sooner. NYRO is intended for players aged 10 to 25 of a minimum grade 8 standard - however, examination success is not the only criterion: the audition is the main measurement for selection, and capable and experienced players without grade passes are fully encouraged to apply. BlockWork is a one-to-a-part ensemble by invitation (selection through audition).

The fee covers musical tuition, accommodation with full board, all course activities, loan of music and instruments in some cases, the concert and any necessary transport for course activities. Travel costs to and from the course are not included.

Remember, if you think you cannot afford the fees, help may be possible. For example, the Society of Recorder Players has the SRP Walter Bergmann Fund to assist young recorder players.

Future Courses 

Recorder Days

Learn about and keep in touch with NYRO throughout the year at regular Recorder Days around the country with NYRO conductors and tutors.

You can also audition for our Summer Course on these days.

These days are for recorder players of Grade 3 standard and above, aged 8 to 25, also recorder teachers.

Tuition groups will be organised by ability, for example Grade 3 to Grade 6 and Grade 7 to Diploma, and there will be some playing for the whole ensemble.

At some of our Recorder Days, we encourage young beginners on the recorder to come for the afternoon to enjoy a playing session with one of our tutors and have the chance to participate in the informal concert at the end of the day. See the individual events or contact the NYRO Administrator for more details.

Come and make new friends, meet old friends or find out what NYRO is all about!

Cost: £29 (a late booking surcharge of £10 will be payable for bookings made less than one week before the event)
