Brava, Jennifer!

Our own Jennifer Streeter knocked 'em dead in Duke Chapel on November 25 as part of its Bach Cantata Series. Along with fellow recorder player William Thauer, Jennifer was part of the Mallarme Chamber Players and featured in both the opening Intrada and Motet by Altenburg and a longer work by Charpentier. Hopping nimbly  from alto recorder to soprano to (sweet!) sopranino and back again, she wowed us with soaring melodic lines in Charpentier's majestic Antiphons and dazzled with sprightly "Noels" between these more solemn sections.
The concert was a gorgeous approach to the Advent season, and Jennifer gave a brilliant performance. We're proud of our  musical director, and we thank her for sharing her musical talents so generously!


New TRS Site Coordinator Named

TRS gives a big welcome to Jim Klausman, our new site coordinator. Jim is new to the Triangle and to TRS. His first act as coordinator was to sign up TRS to play in January at the Forest at Duke, where he lives. 

Jim has a music education background and taught at public schools in New York and Pennsylvania. He was also on the faculty at Marshall University and Edinboro University in Pennsylvania. Jim played recorder for 10 years with the Lake Erie Consort. He is now playing with the Baillie Branslers. 

Welcome aboard, Jim. TRS is lucky to have you share your talents with us.
