the Twin Cities Recorder Guild (TCRG)
The Twin Cities Recorder Guild (TCRG),
based in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, is a chapter of the American
Recorder Society. It is a non-profit organization with the goal of supporting
and encouraging recorder playing in our community. We provide opportunities
for members to play together and to learn
more about recorder playing, and we share recorder and early music with
the community through performances, workshops, and a newsletter.
We have monthly meetings (September
- May) for recorder players of all ages and levels; they include group
playing, a presentation by our music director or guest, socializing, and
an opportunity to buy music and instruments. For summer playing opportunities,
check with the president. Members
occasionally organize sessions at various times over the summer. Ask for
your name to be included on the notification list.
We produce a newsletter, maintain a lending
library of recorder music & instruments, and sponsor
recorder and early music workshops and performances.
Notice to school teachers: Members of TCRG are available
to come to your school and demonstrate recorders of all sizes, answer
questions, and play a variety of music in a recorder ensemble. Contact
Barbara Aslakson (952-545-3178)
or Jean Allison Olson.
