Welcome to the ADRS website

Welcome to the website of the Australasian Double Reed Society, or more colloquially known as the ADRS.


2020 was a challenging year but the ADRS successfully held the first completely virtual conference and competition. One of the highlights was the traditional get-together at the conference for a communal playout with all things double reed. Conference 2020 did not disappoint with a collaborative Big Band featuring an arrangement of Bohemian Rhapsody.

Press play on the video below to hear it in all its reedy glory.
