Donation of Recorders to Benefit BRS 

Chris Drelich was the choral director at Governors Academy in Byfield before his unexpected passing a few years ago. His family has kindly donated several of his recorders to the Boston Recorder Society. These instruments and others will be for sale at the October meeting to benefit BRS. We offer our thanks to the Drelich family.
