Recorder Competitions

From 4:30 pm on Monday 29 April 2024 at the Free Church, Hampstead Garden Suburb.

Adjudicator: Ashley Solomon

Competition Guidelines

The following guidelines apply to all the Festival’s recorder competitions.

For each entry, age is the age on 1st September before the date of the class so that all the entrants in a class are in the same school year.

Entrants are reminded to introduce themselves and the piece(s) they are playing and to wear dress appropriate for a performance.

Entrants must provide the Adjudicator with a clean copy of the music for each work to be performed.

Pieces may not be repeated in different classes.

If an entrant has been a pupil of the Adjudicator in the year prior to the Festival or is well-known to the Adjudicator, they should contact the Section Administrator before entering.
