Tish Berlin would like to let you know about some great music Zoom events coming up this weekend.
First, the Amherst Early Music Spring Break Workshop, normally held in person in Washington, D.C., will be held online this year. We have a great line-up of classes for recorders, viols, and lutes with faculty including Frances Blaker, me, Saskia Coolen, Valerie Horst and Wendy Powers, Tom Beets, Brent Wissick, Patricia Ann Neely, John Moran, Chris Morrongiello, and Douglas Freundlich. You can see the classes at the link just below, and you’ll be able to register starting at 5:00 pm Eastern today:
As part of the AEM Spring Break workshop, you can attend the following free events:
Saturday March 20 at 5 pm Eastern: attend a forum with composers Frances Blaker, Melika Fitzhugh, and Eric Haas, moderated by me. I look forward to talking with these composers and hearing some of their music for recorders, and will welcome your questions as well.
Sunday March 21 at 6:00 pm Eastern: AEM Spring Break faculty concert! Sit back and relax while listening to the faculty play music by Bach, Sieg, Telemann, Bartolomé de Selma y Salaverde, and much more!
Second, the American Recorder Society is celebrating Play the Recorder Month with a very special event on Saturday – an interview and Q&A with Melika Fitzhugh (big day for her!) and a play-along of her ARS PTRM piece, Transparent Letters Across the Sky. This will be an hour-long event starting at 2 pm Eastern. The webinar will be recorded in its entirety, and posted to the ARS YouTube channel for future viewing. Register by going to the link here:
Best wishes to all,
