Carrick Consort


Carrick Consort

Recorder group

 We are approaching a busy time for our group. One of our players attended a Course at Lyme Regis from November 11th – 14th and another went up there this weekend. Myself and another of our group attended an advanced  ‘Canons and Fugues’ Course from November 11th – 14th in Somerset. When it started to snow on Thursday morning we did wonder if we would be stuck there!
Twelve of us got together the next day, Friday 15th to play at the Camborne Music Festival. We entered two groups in the class and our second one won the section by a narrow margin– the playing of all four sets of players was of a very good standard and the adjudicator was impressed by and enjoyed all the performances.
As we head towards Christmas we have bookings to play at Trelissick House each Saturday in December and also at Treliske.

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!

Carrick Bells:




Bell music requires differing numbers of Ringers. The more Ringers the better. That's why we are always looking for new recruits. You don't have to be able to read music. You just need to keep a beat. When you watch bell ringers they are seriously concentrating ( that's considered good especially for the elderly!) So why not come along and have a go?
We are a friendly group (although the leader can be stern) and meet Weds afternoon 3:30 till 5:30 at The Mills Hall in Carharrack, but not Feb 12th or 19th.
Interested??  Then give me an email, ring or just turn up. We will be pleased to see you.

The Jazz Appreciation Group (JAG) held a most interesting meeting at their 2nd meeting of the year Monday 20th January 2020 at  the Carnon Downs Village Hall. We invited the Simon Latarche Trio along to demonstrate how the various instruments the musicians play blend and stay in tune with each other. We were given a enthusiastic and humorous talk of how this is carried out, with some interaction from the audiance. We discussed how music isn't just fundimental to humanity(no human society is without it)but that it is also an innate part of our psychological and evolutionary make-up a social glue, which brings people together.

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.
