What is this, a Boston Recorder Society December newsletter when it's still November? Our meeting is very early this month: Sunday, December 8, 6:30-9:00PM. Please RSVP yes or no as soon as possible. A prompt reply helps our coaches with their preparations.

New players always welcome--recorders, baroque flutes and strings, and early loud winds. If you are new to BRS, your first meeting is a free trial. See the BRS website for details about our ensembles, membership options, and directions.
