Carrick Consort


Carrick Consort
The Carrick Consort was formed about 6 years ago with just 3 players. Since then we have grown to a group of (at present) 18 members, many of whom have learnt to play other recorders apart from the size they were used to.
We usually perform in 4 parts: descant, treble, tenor and bass but sometimes more.
A wide variety of music is explored from 15th Century to present day in a range of styles.
We meet on Monday mornings in term time at Perranwell Centre from 9:45 to 12:15 with a coffee break in the middle.
We are also an affiliated orchestra of the Society of Recorder Players.
Some of our players take part in various Residential Recorder Courses further afield which broadens our repertoire and improves technique.

We are a very friendly group so if there are any new members out there who were/are Recorder Players do feel free to come and try us out!

September 9th/16th/23rd/30th/
October 7th / 14th / 28th   (none on 21st – half term)

Four of us JAG U3A members enjoyed a 2hr Jazz River Cruise with Bar, up the river Fal in June, listening to Swingologya Trio playing gypsy Jazz and swing. Why are you telling us now, after the event you might be saying? The answer being, I was not made aware of the cruise untill after the deadline of the  June addition of the magazine, although I did arrange a U3A discount with the owners for a minimum group of 10, from the JAG but through lack of time did not make the number.

Here's the good news. I've been advised by 
FalRiver that theyare going to run it again!!!! on the 25th September. From Prince of Wales Pier Falmouth 6:30pm till 8:30 ticket price £22:50 per head. I have again negociated a discount for 10 or more members including guests of £5:00per head reducing the price to £17:50 per head

So we have  time to get organised this time.

Would those U3A members wishing to join the cruise please advise me of their name and U3A membership number via my email address or land line telephone 01872870385 by17th September, payment will be cash prior to boarding on the day.
This will give me time to establish if there are the numbers for the discount come into play or not, and, inform everyone including FalRiver.

Should we not have the numbers and you still wish to go you will be required to contact FalRiver by telephone or email for tickets.

U3A Carrick Singers:

Carrick Singers
Going from strength to strength

Your choir continues to grow in number and singing versatility under the careful guidance of its group leader Andrew Julian and the inspirational musical direction of Richard Bailey.

musicThe weekly, Wednesday afternoon, practises have an intensity of purpose with Richard’s flare for keeping everyone attentive though his musicality and wit.  The small band of tenors, or are they baritones, would greatly welcome others joining them – why don’t you give it a go or encourage a friend to do so.?

The introduction of published musical scores, for every member, is greatly increasing the Choir’s repertoire.  Alongside that the choir’s concert sartorial elegance has expanded to include both turquoise and pink; scarves for the ladies and bowties for the gentlemen.  A polite request to any former member: returning the music and passing on your scarf or bowtie would help keep membership of the choir the exceedingly good value that it is.  Just call Andrew on 01872 870164; thank you.
