Greetings HMRS members and fellow recorder players.
We are disappointed to have our meetings cut short this year; however, until it is safe to meet in person, we are considering other ways to support each other.
Our HMRS board has scheduled a Zoom meeting to plan for the coming year. We will be discussing ways to stay in touch
with you via email, Facebook, Zoom and our website.
Do you have any ideas? Please reply to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send me your thoughts.
How have you been spending your time these days? I have found music-making to be an important part of my time at home. I ordered some solo pieces from Courtly Music: Japanese tenor solos and jazz alto solos by Marg Hall. Both have been great fun. In the meantime, I encourage you to join the American Recorder Society as there are many resources for members and non-members at
The American Recorder Society also maintains a wonderful channel on YouTube
Boston Recorder Society has monthly online meetings where you can play Zoom duets with your microphone muted.
More info at www.bostonrecordersociety.org
New York City Recorder Guild is also holding monthly Zoom sessions. Check their website at http://nyrg.org
Amherst Early Music is offering weekly classes on Zoom and a full 2 week workshop in July. Sign up to get their emails.
I will be sending another letter later this summer; however, what I really hope is to see you all in person soon.
Linda Botimer, President
