The New York Recorder Guild Returns!

Attendance was amazing at the the first meeting of the New New York Recorder Guild on Thursday evening, June 29th. Fifty-three New York players, long lost New York Players, teachers, players from sister chapters, and friends joined together and played a wonderful program assembled and conducted by Deborah Booth. Everyone had a fabulous time. Many immediately signed up as members.

Schedule for upcoming playing sessions to follow soon. For more information, to receive our e-blasts, or to join, e-mail newyorkrecorders@gmail.com



Recorder Mass Appeal As Part of "Make Music New York" 

Deborah Booth once again led a recorder playing session so popular with NY Metro Area Recorder Players at Straus Park as part of the Make Music NY Festival this June 21, 2017.   In addition to an enthusiastic group of players from many local ARS Chapters, there was a lively audience of local residents and a Very Tall Man. The repertoire included a selection of pieces from the Renaissance, Baroque, and contemporary eras.

MMNY posterMake Music New York is a live, free musical celebration across the city that takes place each June 21, the longest day of the year. On that day, hundreds of public spaces throughout the five boroughs become impromptu stages for over 1,000 free concerts. This will be the fourth time for recorder players to take part in this festival and we hope to help raise the profile and increase awareness of our wonderful instrument.
