The Recorder Co-op & The Melbourne Recorder Academy

THE RECORDER CO-OP is a recorder quartet made up of some of Australia's most well-known recorder players, including Hannah Coleman, Ruth Wilkinson, Ryan Williams and Alexandra Bailliet-Joly.  

Performances are on matched recorder consorts built by Danish recorder maker Ture Bergstrøm and New Zealand recorder maker David Coomber, this ensemble brings back the authentic sounds of the Renaissance era.

Comfortable with many musical styles The Recorder Co-op also has a passion for commissioning new works for Renaissance style recorders, drawing from the deep past these special instruments speak to contemporary Australia.

With the help of the Victorian Recorder Guild and DCMT, the members established the Melbourne Recorder Academy, focusing on workshops for young recorder players. MRA aims to create an inspiring community and music making opportunities for young recorder players, lead by professional musicians.
