Moss Bay Recorder Society

The MBRS meetings start up their regular playing sessions on Second Saturdays of each month, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm.  The location is different each month, so check back here to learn where the future sessions will be!

Saturday, October 14 at the Redmond Library (15990 NE 85th St, Redmond)
Come join us for a rousing whirlwind tour through a variety of music that spans the ages from the Renaissance to the present day and makes stops at familiar and novel genres along the way. Steve and Ann Marshall have been arranging and composing for amateur players of the recorder for many years with great success. Their arrangements offer something fun for everyone and their compositions add wonderful depth to the repertoire of contemporary music for recorders. We will explore some Renaissance madrigals, a motet by Isabella Leonarda, Offenbach’s classic Can-Can, and two pieces by Steve Marshall in contrasting styles.

Saturday, November 11 will be at the Mountlake Terrace Library (23300 58th Ave W, Mountlake Terrace).
