February 15-18, 2013
(Friday evening to Monday noon)
Winter Recorder Workshop
As long as music has been written down, recorder has been played. This gives us lots of wonderful music to explore – from the 14th thru the 21st century. This year 2013 is the bicentennial of many of the towns and counties in this part of the Adirondacks so in celebration of that we’ll include some of the best arrangements of American music of the 19th,20th & 21st centuries. There will be a technique class, Renaissance duet class, plenty of ensemble playing (including Bach) and as always - a capped reed consort.
On Sat. Val will teach early American dances as complied and taught by John Griffiths a dance teacher who shared his talents in towns and cities throughout New York and New England in the early 19th century. On Sunday we’ll learn contra dances done today with a tune popular from 1950 – 1970 and finish with a modern-day dance done to a medley of 2-3 reels to show how thing have changed over two centuries.
The Faculty Concert is Sunday evening at 8pm in the Warren Room
All are welcome – it is open to the general public. The Festivities begin on Friday with Richie conducting the famous All Together Recorder Ensemble.
Instructors are Richie & Elaine Henzler, Recorder & capped reeds, and

Here's our 2012 listing of recorder music with play-along CD
Courtly Music Unlimited proudly announces that we now offer the complete line of Mollenhauer recorders.
As you look for the best in quality and price we offer a value added service that I consider an important one. Elaine personally refines the tuning of all wooden recorders valued over $75.00. She has been doing this for our customers since we opened our doors in 1988. She learned her skills from Alec Loretto, a well know recorder maker from New Zealand. It simply makes a difference. I hope you consider us when making a purchase. We offer competitive pricing on recorders and expert advice on music. If you see a lower price offered by any American Recorder Society Business member this holiday season just let us know and we will strive to match it.
Looking for Yamaha plastic recorders? We have some of the best prices around. We also offer a Yamaha tenor with two added keys for the middle joint at a very affordable price.
For those who already have recorders, we have 4 peg (photo) and 5 peg (photo) recorder stands made of solid oak with solid oak and brass dowels. The stands have a beautiful streamline design. Our bass recorder floor rest has a single peg (photo). The perfect gift that makes playing the bass more comfortable. A fresh shipment of pegs is expected shortly.
