Spring Recorder Recital

May 19, 2:30-5:00
The Forest at Duke, Durham

The annual spring TRS recital will take place at Forest at Duke on Sunday, May 19 starting at 3 pm. Small groups are welcome to start practicing at 2:00, and we will all join to practice group finale pieces promptly at 2:25.  Everyone should be finished with their warm-ups by then so they can join the group. 

Group pieces are: 
  • O Lord, make thy Servant Elizabeth (anthology pages 22-25), SAATTB
  • ‘Fantasia on “Faithless Nancy Dawson”’, arranged by Phil Neuman (ARS Play-the-recorder month composition, click here for PDF)
Please invite your friends and families to join us! The concert is free, informal, and open to the public. We will have a reception afterwards provided by Forest at Duke.
 
As a courtesy, please do not leave after you play (unless absolutely necessary).  Stay and enjoy everyone's performance!

Performances may include solos or groups, at all levels, with various instruments. Don’t be shy about participating. We all enjoy the sounds of recorders and appreciate the range of skills that we bring together.
