Hello to our DRS Members and Friends both near and far,
This is a reminder of our upcoming March meeting on Sunday, March 21st from 2:00 – 3:30 Mountain Time, with Annette Bauer. A native of Germany, Annette studied Medieval and Renaissance music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland, specializing on recorder techniques with Conrad Steinmann (2001). She is also certified in the Orff-Schulwerk method. Bauer has appeared as guest artist with leading early music ensembles throughout the U.S.–including appearing in Cirque du Soleil’s Totem. She will lead us in exploring music of Josquin des Pres, in celebration of the 500th anniversary of his death.
Newbies meet from 1:00 – 1:30 Mountain Time. Please email Bill Urban at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending the Newbies session. TheNewbies session is available at no cost. This is a great way to boost your skills and confidence on recorder in general, or perhaps on a recorder new you (i.e. Alto or Bass).
Both Zoom meetings open 30 minutes early so you have time to sign on, settle in, chat a bit and get ready to play. There is an additional opportunity to chat following each session.
The attached flyer provides additional information about the music, as well as payment information if you are not a member of the DRS. For current members and for those who sign up for this meeting or for the remainder of the season per the flyer’s instructions, you will receive links to the music as well as the Zoom sessions prior to the meeting.
Those in the Colorado area will appreciate the fact that even though this is our snowiest month, we will not need to worry about how much snow we need to drive through or how much time to allow in order to arrive on time!! Now that I think about it, there is much of the country that may be grateful for this convenience and warmth!!☃
Take care, stay well, and let’s make some music together!! 🎶
