Double Choirs: “Is that an echo I hear?”
Sunday, April 18, 2010
Come and experience the fun and challenges of playing 2 and 3 choir music. You can pretend you are in Venice, and have the pleasure of making music together. Please bring all sizes of instruments. It would be fun to do La Bergamasca with a choir of crumhorns, like the recorder orchestra did. Gambas and sackbuts are also welcome.

to update you on the status of the music library and on the possible
participation of our Chapter in a fund raising activity to support
the library. According to Mark, the library work needed to properly
preserve and log all the donated music is backed up several years.
Our donation is only one of several even larger donations. Mark
is thinking the total collection may well be the largest collection
of recorder music in the world.

Nelson, longtime ARS member and newsletter editor will host the
Newbie session in April. Bruce, a player of many sizes of recorder,
will demonstrate his great bass recorder for those of you who have
not seen nor heard one. He will then lead music from a collection
titled “Renaissance Debut.” The arrangements in this book lend themselves
to a great many possible orchestrations, from solo to six parts
and are both lovely and easy to play. Don’t miss this special get-together.
