Dear Early Music Friends,
Attached you will find a newsletter describing the Sacramento Recorder Society’s plans for the coming season. The board is excited about the conductors we will be able to experience this year! You will also find the membership form for this year. Please fill it out and send it, with a check, to Dori$ Loughner, our treasurer.
We look forward to staying in touch with you and making music together even in these challenging times.
Patty Johnson < pijohnso1 >, SRS newsletter editor
The PDFs of music for each Zoom session will be emailed several days before the meeting so there will be plenty of time to look over the music and print whatever parts you want to play. The link to the Zoom meeting will also be emailed at that time, along with instructions for joining a Zoom meeting.
Several of our members have participated in multiple Zoom sessions this summer sponsored by SFEMS, Amherst Early Music, and Early Music America. We keep coming back for more because it’s educational and fun! In addition to partnering with the San Francisco Recorder Society we are also in the process of developing a partnership with the East Bay Recorder Society in order for us to have access to an even greater variety of professional directors. There will be a wealth of opportunities to learn and play this season for our members! Although, because of the pandemic, there will not be any in-person sessions this season, we’ll have the opportunity to learn from a wider selection of Early Music Professionals than we’ve ever had before since geography is no longer a barrier.
Please be aware that these opportunities are only available to members of the Sacramento Recorder Society. If you have been receiving emails with attached music in past years, but are not a paid-up member, you will not continue to receive these messages. So please download the membership form, fill it out, and send it with a check to Doris at the address on the form.
Mark Schiffer < marschif >, SRS Vice-President
