Can You Host a Breakfast for the American Recorder Society?

The American Recorder Society (ARS) is looking for a volunteer to host a breakfast during the 2017 Boston Early Music Festival (June 11-18), near the Marriott Boston Downtown where the exhibition will be held.

Chapter, Consort, and Recorder Orchestra representatives will be invited to toss around ideas about the ARS activities, their chapters, and what they'd like to see the ARS offer or do differently. Between 10 and 15 people are expected. ARS will provide the food, but is looking for a volunteer to provide the space. Preferred day is Saturday or Sunday, June 17 or 18. For more information contact Barbara Prescott via email at
Concerts, Classes, and Events

If you have news or announcements of interest to the BRS community, please send your information before the 10th of each month to the newsletter editor.
