***** GROUP ACTIVITIES DURING THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN *****
- The Recorder Group have been in constant contact!
- Many of the members have been poet writing and sending their efforts on to the group. Every one of us has submitted at least one poem. When we eventually meet again as a Group we are going to make up booklets of these efforts and if possible will sell them and profits will go to a Charity of their choice.
- We also have two clever ladies, one who has written untitled music and send it by e-mail to everyone we then have to guess the title of this piece. A few days later we will then receive the actual music to play along with. Again, eventually we hope to get it all on a CD to keep as a memento, called our "Lockdown" CD. Some of the music for example: In Your Easter Bonnet, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, You'll Never Walk Alone, I'll Be With You in Apple Blossom Time, We'll Meet Again.
The recorder group has been formed for those interested in playing the instrument. We meet in the St Paul's Centre, St Mary's Church, Church Hill, Caterham.
At the moment we are preparing 3 pieces to play at the Purley Music Festival in March.
During the Summer we play at a few Nursing Homes and perform at one of the St Lawrence Sunday Afternoon Tea.
During November and December we again play for a few Nursing Homes and The Westway.
Last year we were delighted to be invited to play in a Charity Concert with the Caterham Community Choir, and also at the AGM of the Caterham & District U3A (see photo opposite).
We currently have 14 members and are proud to say descant, treble, tenor and bass recorders are used in our performances.
For more information, please contact the group leader- Barbara Holloway
Please contact the Groups co-ordinator if you are interested in helping to form a second group.
