September 2020 Newsletter

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.

Vivace!

The May Sort-of-a-Newsletter

Dear Recorder Friends,

I’m surely missing our monthly meetings. So disappointing not to see all of you and Greta and Alexa. I’m sure you have been finding some fun and worthwhile things to do at home; here are a few additional suggestions. We’ll be in touch when we know if it might be possible to get together in June. We’re a smaller group (thumbs up!), but a demographically older group (thumbs down, darn); we’ll just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, stay safe! Play or listen to something beautiful!

Dear Early Music friends,

Here it is!  The January Chapter meeting and our Winter Party are a great way to start the new year right.  Also, a little reminder:  Have you been enjoying meetings without becoming a member this year?  Uh-oh!  Please see Doris at the January meeting and rectify your status by joining!!  We depend on dues to pay for our conductors and our use of the Friends Meetinghouse. You can download the membership form below.

Still looking for Soupe volunteers for the Winter Party!  Please email me with your soupe plans, even if you haven’t completely decided on the soupe recipe.

Happy New Year!

Dear Early Music friends,

Here are the newsletter and a flyer for the Winter Party.  Please do plan to let me know about Soupe at the December meeting.  It’s always nice to have plans in place!  I’m also attaching a charming bit of dancing for your enjoyment.  Alas, we will not be doing this at the party.  See you on the 3rd,
