Boston Recorder Society Newsletter
Our 65th Year
May 2020
In This Issue
Join us Sunday May 31 6:30PM
for an online playing session

Greetings to our Boston Recorder Society members and friends. We hope you are staying safe in this difficult time. Our next meeting will be an online session on Sunday, May 31, with BRS board president and music director Héloïse Degrugillier.
In this format, we will meet via Zoom for 90 minutes of playing, with a break for a little online socializing (bring your own snack!). Participants simultaneously play duets along with the coach and are muted in the meeting so that they hear only the coach.
Music and a link to log in to Zoom will be sent to those who register.  

The drop-in fee is the same as for our in-person sessions: basic members $20, non-members $30.

Please RSVP here!
