Oxford Society of Recorder Players

recordersIf you enjoy playing the recorder you are welcome to join us in the Oxford branch of the Society of Recorder Players. We meet each month to play under the guidance of our Musical Director or a visiting conductor. All music is provided - bring your recorders and a music stand.

Meetings are usually held on the third Saturday of each month, from 2 to 5.00. Meetings are held at the West Oxford Community Centre in Botley. See the venue page for directions on getting there by car or public transport.

Meetings are free to members and to first time visitors - so come along and try us out.

Annual subscriptions are 45 for individuals, 65 for families and 23 for students. If you join the Oxford branch you enjoy reciprocal membership with the North Cotswold branch. Non-members pay 5 per meeting after the first.

You can download a membership application in Word or pdf, and also a gift aid form.


There is some more information about the music played at these meetings on the programme details page.
