Per the director, the group is for older folks who want to continue or start playing the recorder in a large ensemble situation for fun. Repertoire includes mostly four part music from the Renaissance and Baroque, arrangements of music from the Romantic era, popular music, English Country Dances, and the kitchen sink. Participants are levels from lower intermediate through advanced; most play SATB, but it's not essential. Relaxed atmosphere with emphasis on making music.
