We were pleased to be visited by Helen Hooker for the second January in a row to kick off another year of virtual mini-workshops with an interesting and wide-ranging set of pieces from 4 musical eras. An attendance comprising 38 members of the Hudson Mohawk Recorder Society and the Recorder Society of Connecticut enjoyed a few minutes of exchanging New Year’s greetings prior to digging into the day’s music. Historical background and performance tips and techniques were offered for each piece. We are thrilled to announce that new members were introduced for each of the Societies. The cooperative joint sponsorship of the second annual 10-part series of mini-workshops by HMRS and RSC has proven to be a great success, forging robust participation, musical enjoyment and new friendships.
