Please RSVP yes or no as soon as possible.

Refreshments in November will be provided by Dan's group.

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

With the goal of reaching more recorder players and strengthening our community, the American Recorder Society (parent organization of BRS) is giving away some fabulous prizes. All you need to do for a chance to win is give your email address. If you then share the give-away with friends, you are awarded additional chances to win. You do not need to be a member of the ARS or BRS to enter.

Full details are here. Prizes include valuable instruments, music, and accessories. (You could even win one of Jay Pransky's recorder stands, which many of you have seen and coveted at BRS meetings.)

Be sure to enter now, because the last date for entering is November 16.
