The American Recorder Society’s (ARS) annual Recorder Relay returns to Berkeley at BFX! Two+ hours of continuous recorder performances by talented local ensembles will be presented in “relay” style immediately following the 1:00 PM performance of the Barbary Coast Recorder Orchestra.

Get your groove on with this noble instrument and the beautiful music that is made with it. Admission is FREE. Come and go as you wish - stay for the entire program or for just a few selections, as your time permits.

This event will be preceded at 1:45 PM by the bestowing of two prestigious awards from the American Recorder Society:

The 2024 Distinguished Achievement Award goes to Voices of Music's co-director Hanneke van Proosdij of El Cerrito, CA, for decades of high-profile work with the recorder and her significant influence on the recorder community in North America.

Peter Ballinger of Berkeley, CA will receive the ARS Presidential Special Honor Award for the early work he did with the Society as well as a lifetime of work publishing superb editions of music for recorders from the 1960s until his retirement in June 2023. You can read about Peter in this article by Berkeley musicians Nick and Sue Jones: PRB Productions article
