Play the Recorder Month 2022

Dear Recorder Friends,

In March we celebrate Play the Recorder Month! Usually we play the chosen piece as part of our monthly chapter meeting, but, darn, no in-person meeting once again. The piece of music that the American Recorder Society has chosen is called “Fanfare: returning” by Erik Pearson and it was included in a recent ARS magazine. There will be an online presentation this Saturday, March 19th at 11am PDT which will include an interview with the composer and an opportunity to play along with a virtual ensemble. You need to sign up to get the link and participate. Here’s the link:

At this link you will find access to the music as well as performances to practice with before the big day. And there’s a link to register for the virtual meeting on Saturday.

Hope to see you there! Patty Johnson, SRS
