Next Playday

The next playday will be on Sunday February 14th at St Joseph’s School, 65 Ross River Road, Mundingburra, 2.00 – 4.30. The leader will be Sister Valerie Huston and the theme is 'Travel through Time'. Valerie will be taking us on a journey through the centuries during which recorders have been played and enjoyed.

Please being music stands, instruments, something to share for afternoon tea, and a gold coin to help cover our expenses.

The 2010 membership year starts from this meeting so this is a good time to pay your fee (Membership fees: $12 (Single), $20 (Family), $10 (concession)). Let us know if this presents any problem.

Christmas Busking

On Sunday 20th of December a group of recorder society members played at the Cotters Market. Our Christmas carols were very well received by the passers-by and we were able to make a donation of $103.95 to charity, The Smith Family. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Note in your diary

Remember that the April playday is on April 18th. We are planning to repeat a successful activity we undertook a few years ago with a meeting at the Heritage Tearooms on Hervey Range and a theme of Australian bush songs.
