Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra


Fred Palmer and the Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra invite you to be our guests for a virtual orchestra meeting and practice session on the evening of Wednesday, February 10. Fred will be leading the meeting and conducting us in playing several pieces of music. The Zoom session will open around 7:15 pm and the meeting proper and music will start at 7:30 pm.

The music includes music from a wide range of times: Mesomedes’ “Hymn to the Sun” from abput 150 C.E., DuFay’s “Quel fronte signorille” from the fifteenth century; Schein’s “Suite No. 15” from the early seventeenth century, and Telemann’s “Overture in C major”, eighteenth century.

During music-playing times we will all be muted and playing along with the sound files that Fred will be playing from his computer as he conducts. Members of the orchestra are encouraged to play their assigned parts; guests may play whatever part they choose. (Of course anyone may actually play any part they wish; no one else will hear you so you have a great chance to experiment.)

The Zoom link and passcode for the meeting are copied below. Please try to join us a few minutes before 7:30 if you can to avoid a last-minute rush at the door. Please direct your questions about obtaining music in advance and joining the Zoom session to me: rayhwhite@yahoo.com

We hope you can join us online on February 10!
