Open Recorder Days Amsterdam 2015

Between May 14th and 17th 2015, recorder players from all over the world came together in Amsterdam for an international recorder festival with lots of exciting activities: concerts, a competition, masterclasses, workshops, a teachers’ conference, an exhibition, a film and much more! Team ORDA-2015 would like thank everyone that was involved: artists, jury members, partners, sponsors, volunteers, competitors and visitors! We are looking forward to the next edition!

Teachers' conference

ORDA-2015 hosted a teachers’ conference about recorder teaching for the first time. The conference consisted of eight lectures around the subject “best practice” which you can watch here!
