The power of music!

The Irish Branch of the Society of Recorder Players meets every month from September to June in Booterstown Community & Arts Centre, Booterstown, Co. Dublin, near the centre of Dublin. We meet on the third Saturday of each month, except when this might cause problems for members, e.g. major public holidays such as Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, etc. (See the Programme of meetings for exact dates.)

Here’s a map of the area

The Playing Schedule for Spring 2019 is now available.

There is a break for tea (50c), chat and announcements between 4:15 and 4:30.

Visitors are always welcome - regular attenders usually become members.

Music is provided and players normally bring their own music stands.

Other Activities

20-21 October 2018
We generally run one playing weekend during the year. These are conducted by an SRP conductor, or by a local visiting conductor. They consist of a series of playing sessions from Saturday morning to Sunday evening. The next one will be on 20th / 21st October 2018.
March 2019

We run one or two one-to-a-part playing days during the year. These are usually on a Sunday, and last all day. The next one will be in the Spring of 2019.

18 May 2019
This month, anyone who can play the recorder (at any level of ability) is invited to attend the monthly meeting and play along with the regular players. See more details here.

SRP Festival

The 2013 Festival was held in Dublin in May 2013. Some details still here.

We do not run the Irish Recorder and Viol Course every year in the third weekend of August, but members of the branch are heavily involved and a large proportion of the membership attends each year.
