Schnabelflotes Youth Recorder Ensemble
A recorder ensemble for youth 14+ yrs
Wednesdays 5:00 - 5:45pm with Barbara
Joining an ensemble group is a fantastic way for those who are already taking private lessons to meet like-minded players and hone their skills in a fun and friendly group environment. Our experienced conductors who lead the ensemble groups will encourage you to expand and enrich your musical repertoire.
The Schnabelflotes Youth Recorder Ensemble, conducted by music teacher and professional musician Barbara Jerjen, is made up of young musicians who are confident with their recorder playing; typically participants have come up through our other recorder tuition groups of progressive skill levels, but confident players of any background are welcome. Barbara takes the group through pieces from the Renaissance and Barouque periods, all the way to contemporary jazz, folk and modern works.
Music For Canberra believes strongly in the importance of performance in improving the self-confidence and musical ability of students of all ages, and Schnabelflotes Youth Recorder Ensemble participants who would like to are certainly encouraged to participate in concerts and other community events (but are under no pressure if they don’t wish to).
The Schnabelflotes Youth Recorder Ensemble performs at Music For Canberra concerts, sometimes performing along with our adult recorder ensemble in a mentor role and to achieve a more robust sound, and also takes part in other performances & special projects and workshops in the wider community, such as Floriade, the Multicultural Festival, and the Australian National Eisteddfod, as well as other community events.
