Inaugural Meeting of the NYRG Brings Together the NYC Recorder Community

NYRG 1st Meeting

Recorder players, teachers, friends and family from across the NY Metro Area assembled on June 29th for the inaugural meeting of the New York Recorder Guild.


Save the Date: NYRG Music Director and WRG Coach, Deborah Booth will perform at a GEMS Concert on October 5, 2017 with Louise Shulman. Location is The Chapel at St. Bartholomew's Church, 50th Street and Park Avenue at 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM; tickets are free and no reservations are required. This program offers some of Telemann's lesser known and later works from Der getreue Music-Meister (Germany's first music periodical) and also the 1752 print of bolder and more original duo pieces which survived in the Civico Museo Bibliografico Musicale in Bologna. These later "flute" duets have been seriously neglected, given the popularity of his well-loved Opus 2 pieces. They will also perform one of the Sonatas in Canon from Opus 5.
