TRS members performed at the NC Capitol!
RALEIGH, N.C. – Even 400 years after his death, Sir Walter Raleigh continues to intrigue. Raleigh sponsored three expeditions to Roanoke colony in the 1580s, the earliest British attempt to settle North America. In 1792, North Carolina’s legislature honored this feat by naming the state’s new capital city for the explorer, soldier, and writer.
On Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018, the North Carolina State Capitol joined worldwide remembrances of Raleigh by showcasing demonstrations of Elizabethan-era life on the Capitol grounds. Re-enactors and community groups such as the Raleigh Sister Cities, English Speaking Union, Sir Walter Chapter of the Colonial Dames, and the British American Business Council attended. At 3 p.m., a formal ceremony commemorating Raleigh’s life and legacy was held in the historic House Chamber. N.C. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall gave remarks and dignitaries representing North Carolina and British organizations participated. Members of the Triangle Recorder Society, pictured above, performed before the service and during the wreath laying ceremony, with selections composed by William Byrd and Antony Holborne. Thanks to Jennifer Streeter for leading the group, which included Walt Robinson, Jan Jenkins, Dana Deaton, and Sue Ann Wright.

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.
