Welcome to NQRS!
The North Queensland Recorder Society was established in 1995 to bring together recorder players in the Townsville and wider North Queensland region for skills development and social playing. To find out more about the Society and membership or to contact the Society visit the About page.

RECORDERS ON MAGNETIC ISLAND (Updated 1 September 2018)
At the Magnetic Island Weekend Workshop in July, we discovered that there is a U3A group of recorder players that meet every Tuesday 1:30-3:30pm at Ros Burry's house at 14 Bottiger Street, Nelly Bay (behind the Health Clinic at 76 Sooning Street). Visitors are welcome: phone Ros on 07 4778 5082 for information and to let the group know you are coming.
2019 WEEKEND WORKSHOP ON MAGNETIC ISLAND (Posted 23 August 2018)
The 2018 Weekend Workshop was such a huge success that we are planning to do it yet again in 2019 on the weekend of 12-14 July. This weekend was chosen for various logistical reasons but note that it coincides with end of the school holidays in Queensland and Victoria and the middle of the school holidays in NSW. Early booking of accommodation and flights would be wise.
At the 2015 AGM members completed a membership survey about the Society and its activities. Nicky, our treasurer, compiled the results and this is available as a pdf document. The committee has used it as the basis for revising our activities for 2016 and implemented major changes.
