The Scottish Recorder Orchestra

Our partner orchestra - Dortmund Recorder Consort


Since 2006, Eileen Silcocks has invited our associate conductor Dietrich Schnabel, director of the Dortmund Recorder Consort, to share the conducting at our annual residential weekend.

In May 2008 the two orchestras combined for a long weekend rehearsal at Haus Nordhelle in Germany and a concert in Dortmund followed in October 2008 by a weekend and concert in Edinburgh. In the 2012-2013 season, our 10th Anniversary year, the Scottish and German contingents met for residential weekends in October in Tullillan and in May in Haus Nordhelle, on both occasions closing the weekends with succesful concerts in Edinburgh and Plettenburg.
