The Chicago Chapter had a very successful workshop led by Anne Timberlake. Anne worked with the chapter on articulation principles, then had the participants apply what they learned to music written by a rogues’ gallery of composers!
Our next meeting will be March 19th and led by our own Dennis Sherman. Be sure to join us. Since it is March and it is play the recorder month, lets celibate by bringing a friend!
