It is with great sadness that we have decided to postpone Melbourne Recorder Academy workshops and concerts for the foreseeable future.
In light of ongoing developments following the announcement of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have come to the conclusion that the safety of our patrons and students is paramount.
We are really sad because as we had some wonderful projects lined up for recorder players in Victoria, but we will endeavour to deliever our workshops and concerts in the future.
In the meantime, we hope you are finding comfort in music and we look forward to seeing you in the future when it is safe again.
All the best,
The Recorder Co-op
