Competition

The application period for the competition has passed. We look forward to welcome participants from 20 different countries. All rounds of the competition are open to the public and admission is free - you are warmly invited to come and listen!

The ORDA-2019 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 feedback from an expert jury and, perhaps, to take a prize home!

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 35 years.
