For the second year in a row we are hosting a FREE online playing meeting with all sorts of holiday music.

It starts at 7pm PST (we're on the west coast in Vancouver, Canada) on Thursday, December 2nd.

Free for everyone! It's our holiday gift to you, our fellow recorder lovers! Just remember to register by 7pm PST on Wednesday, December 1st. A Zoom link will be sent out once registration closes.

In this session Tom Beets will guide us through two of his favourite recorder duets. The first piece, La Tristesse, is a delightfully sober yet challenging piece by Glen Shannon. It develops a rather serious ground motive into an emotional narrative, using even the highest register of the tenor and bass recorder. The second piece is a fantaisie from the Fantaisies à deux parties print of Nicolas Métru (Paris 1642). This set, although clearly composed with didactic purposes in mind, contains vivid and Italian-style bicinia that are fun to investigate and play. Both a barred and an unbarred version is available. Both pieces are set for tenor and bass recorder. It goes without saying that the top part can also be played on a soprano. Please, if possible, prepare both parts of these delightful duets. Geared to: upper intermediate to advanced recorders. Pitch: A=440.

World-renowned Bay Area Early Music performance organization Voices of Music is  thrilled to announce our return to the stage after over a year-long hiatus from in-person concerts. We will be focusing on smaller ensembles, and specifically showcasing violin concertos in our 3-concert series. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area we invite you to subscribe and be immersed in the luscious sounds of our in-person performances. We are hoping that if the circumstances and protocols for CoViD-19 permit it, we will incorporate selections that include the recorder. 

If you can't attend in person, we invite you to visit our very popular YouTube channel to enjoy high definition videos of highlights from performances and special events. Our channel recently surpassed 100 million views! There you will find many selections featuring the recorder: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9qItJ2Gs8Xfu6y_ERKNsxw
