From the Denver chapter:
As I mentioned during our April Denver Recorder Society meeting, Trudy Wayne, of the Boulder Chapter of the American Recorder Society is offering us the opportunity to join Boulder’s May 9th meeting, featuring Lisette Kielson!!
This meeting is free of charge for our membership, and those who have experienced Lisette’s talent, energy and enthusiasm know what a treat we are in for! I hope you can join us for this unexpected extension of our musical season.
Our thanks go out to the American Recorder Society for providing the grant that made this possible, to Trudy and the Boulder Chapter for inviting us to join, and to Woody Colahan for providing the connectivity and hosting the Zoom session for both chapters. As a thanks to the American Recorder Society, we encourage those who are not members to join the ARS. If you are not a member or have not been a member recently, the cost is only $25 for a year! Check them out at https://americanrecorder.org/join_or_renew_now.php.
Following is the information about this session and about Lisette Kielson. More specific information about the Zoom connection, times and music will follow soon.
Thanks everyone, and stay well,
Denver Recorder Society,
A Chapter of the American Recorder Society
The Dance of the Musette: Duos by Chèdeville and CorretteLisette Kielson leads the joint Boulder and Denver Recorder Societies in a virtual playing session of duets by Chèdeville and Corrette. These 18th century dances for the popular musette (or equal instruments) provide a wonderful point of departure for work on articulation and technique as well as musical style and expression. You’ll have the opportunity to play the same part with Lisette, the alternate duet line, or both (as there will be time to switch parts)! Geared toward intermediate and above SAT recorders and treble instruments. Pitch: A=440
Based in Central Illinois Lisette Kielson performs as soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player throughout the Midwest. Past President of the ARS and former Director of Bradley University’s Collegium Musicum, Lisette teaches on the faculty of the Whitewater Early Music Festival, serves as Music Director of the ARS Chicago Chapter, and leads workshops and masterclasses throughout the country (via her new best friend, Zoom)! Lisette holds Bachelor and Master Degrees in flute performance from Indiana University and a post-master’s Diploma in recorder performance from The Royal Conservatory of The Hague. She has recorded with Centaur Records as well as with her own label. Read more at LisetteKielson.com.
