Save the date!  Fall Workshop for Low Recorders

Fall Half-day Workshop: Saturday afternoon, November 7, 2015
This workshop is for players who love to play low recorders: tenor, bass, C-bass, Great bass, or Contra-bass. Watch for registration details coming soon.

Date: Saturday afternoon, November 7, from 1:00PM to 4:30PM  
Coaches: Héloïse Degrugillier and Emily O'Brien
Fee: $55 non-members/$50 members/$45 senior members (65+) and full-time students
Location: Lesley University, University Hall, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge (see the BRS Website for directions and parking information) 

At least half the participants must be able to bring an instrument lower than bass, so that the workshop can successfully present the experience of a full rich low instrument consort.

We are in need of recorders lower than bass to use in this workshop. If you have one you can lend, we would be most grateful if we could arrange to borrow it for this workshop.
Registration details will be available later this month. Watch your email!
