About the Orchestra

The Phoenix Recorder Orchestra was formed in 2003 and mostly consists of players from the South West. Our conductor is Pam Smith and our resident composer/arranger is Steve Marshall.

We now also have a chamber orchestra of 10-14 players which meets in the morning before main orchestra rehearsals; it performs with the full orchestra but also gives separate performances.

Both groups play a wide range of repertoire on the full range of recorders, from the tiny garklein to our three Sub-great bass recorders, which blend to give a beautiful, rich sound.

Membership of the orchestra is by invitation, but if you would like to find out more about it please contact Val Giltrow-Tyler via email  (info©phoenixrecorderorchestra•org•uk)
