Birmingham International Recorder and Early Music Festival

We have had this information through about the Birmingham International Recorder and Early Music Festival, at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire this coming February from Martin Perkins, Head of Early Music & Instrument Curator, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

There’s a huge range of events spread over 4 days: concerts, recitals, masterclasses, films, workshops, exhibitions and talks, and a Young Recorder Soloists’ Competition. We have international soloists visiting, well-known groups from the world of early music, and some innovative projects presenting old music in new ways.
