Do you play the recorder? Canberra Recorder & Early Music Society (CREMS) would love you to join us

CREMS is a society of recorder enthusiasts in the Canberra region who love this wonderful instrument. We enjoy playing both early and modern music on recorders of all sizes from the tiny sopranino to the large contrabass. We offer playing opportunities including recorder orchestras, large ensembles and workshops led by professional tutors as well as informal gatherings of players led by any interested member. Many of our members have formed their own small consorts and ensembles. We can also facilitate contact between members who would like to play in small groups.

Our orchestra and ensemble perform in public once or twice a year, In recent years we have performed in the High Court Sunday Concert Series and at the National Portrait Gallery.

Twice a year CREMS participates in a weekend workshop led by professional tutors in Bundanoon in southern NSW, in conjunction with the Sydney Society of Recorder Players. For more information please click here

If you are interested in playing with us come along to one of our monthly orchestra sessions. First session is free! Find out more here.

We also have a Facebook page and an associated Facebook group. Find out more here
