In March we celebrate Play the Recorder Month!
The piece of music that the American Recorder Society has commissioned for Play-the-Recorder Day 2023 is entitled “Quo Vadis?”, by Dutch-born, Austin-based composer Victor Eijkhout. ARS members received the piece with the Winter 2022 edition of the American Recorder Magazine.
On the ARS PtRM page members will find access to the music as well as performances to practice with before the big day. There is also a link to an online event on Play the Recorder Day, Saturday March 18 2023. The session will be recorded via Zoom, so you will have a keepsake of the event. Eijkhout will offer an online lecture about this work and the inspiration behind it, followed by a Zoom group play-in of the piece with a video of Emily O’Brien performing and conducting. It is a great way to get to know the composer and play the piece with others, with no performance stress.
