The Peregrine Recorder Orchestra
Registered Charity no. 1111928
Peregrine was founded in
1985 by Ian Farquhar, and is
therefore the UK's third-longest-established recorder orchestra. It is
based in the village of Ickwell, near Biggleswade in Bedfordshire. As a
registered charity itself, one of Peregrine's aims is to assist other
charities - often small, local ones - to raise funds.
are sad to announce that our founder, Ian Farquhar,
passed away on 18 January 2019
Our other aim, apart from
enjoying ourselves of course, is to promote the understanding and
appreciation of our much-maligned instrument! We do this in two ways;
staging two or three concerts per year, and running a series of school
visits in the local area.
