The Scottish Recorder Orchestra
Conductor: Eileen Silcocks
Associate conductor: Dietrich Schnabel Chair: Ingeborg van Knippenberg
Monthly rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons in Stirling (resuming on September the 18th 2016).
The orchestra has about 60 members, playing all sizes of recorder from sopranino to sub‑contrabass, making a full orchestral sound. Repertoire ranges from ancient to modern, including original compositions and arrangements of pieces written for other combinations. Rehearsals are once per month plus occasional residential weekends. Public concerts are performed at least annually. There is a special relationship with the Dortmund Recorder Consort involving joint residential weekends and joint concerts in both countries.
