The ORDA-2017 recorder competition promises an exciting opportunity for all participants: the chance to play for a wide audience, to meet and listen to other players, to get tips and feedback from an expert jury and, perhaps, to take a prize home!

The application period closed on the 15th of July 2017.

The competition is open to amateur recorder players of all ages, divided into three main categories:

A) Recorder solo or with accompaniment
B) Recorder duo, trio, quartet and quintet • mixed ensembles of 2 up to 5 members C) Recorder sextets and larger ensembles • mixed ensembles of 6 or more members

These categories are subdivided into three age groups (average age when entering as an ensemble): 1) 11 years and younger 2) 12 to 15 years old 3) 16 years and older

There is also a special (pre)professional category:

D) Recorder consorts formed by Conservatoire students and/or graduates with an average age up to 30 years.
