ABOUT THE SRP

www.srp.org.uk

The Society of Recorder Players, founded in 1937,
is a charity registered in England, Wales and Scotland. Its principal objective is to promote the education
of the public in the study, practice and
appreciation of the recorder.
Membership is usually through one of over 50 Branches spread throughout
the whole UK. As well as the pleasure of regular local playing in a welcoming and stimulating environment, benefits of membership include subscription to 'The Recorder' magazine, access to a vast music library, the expertise of an annual Visiting Conductor to each branch subsidised by the Society, specialist Training Courses,
an address list of members, the facility to
attend other branch meetings at little or no extra cost -
and much, much more - all of which can be found
on the Society's comprehensive website.

TO JOIN - OR JUST JOIN-IN?
There is no set standard of playing required in order to enjoy music-making with other branch members, though an ability to sight-read is taken for granted. Most branches happily cater for groups of mixed ability, which usually translates into those with greater playing experience having a relaxing day's play and the less-practised enjoying the challenge of widening their range.
A good conductor (and Wales branch is blessed with two!), will encourage all with their knowledge and enthusiasm. We warmly welcome visiting players at Wales branch - if you've only just learned to play, or have recently returned to the instrument, you may feel shy about joining-in, in which case, just sit and listen, enjoy the music and ease yourself in gently.

To join the SRP click the dragon logo above left to download the Full-year Application/Renewal membership form - (PDF)

To join after January in any year, click on the dragon logo above right to dowload the Half-year form - (PDF).

Subscription fees are in two components - one to the Society itself, which includes the excellent quarterly magazine 'The Recorder' sent direct to your doorstep - and an additional sub to your chosen branch to cover costs such as hall hire, refreshments, conductors and music. Meeting times and subs vary between branches. Subscription is annual, with the Society playing year running from Sept 1st to Aug 31st. For those joining after January in any year, the Society sub is halved and Wales branch sub is reduced. We hold 9 meetings per year, 6 of which fall after January.
