Other groups

We don't currently have a brass group, but if you play a brass instrument please get in touch and if there is enough interest we may try to arrange a group.

We are also hoping to start an Early Music group if numbers permit, to explore Medieval and Renaissance music on historically authentic instruments. We have some instruments available – basic knowledge of recorder fingering would be an advantage. Please contact us if you are interested.
