Bring with you: recorders you wish to play, a music stand, pencil and coffee mug.
Our mentor program helps less experienced players. Our playing meetings are usually held on the 2nd Saturday of the month, September through May. These sessions are directed by some of the finest recorder and early music professionals in the region. We gather around 9:30am and playing begins at 10am. We break for coffee, conversation and treats (often home-baked) around 11:15, and the playing finally wraps up at 12:30pm.
RSLI also has a large library of music, music-related books, and instruments. Members can check out items at our monthly meetings.
