This spring we welcome Shelley Gruskin for his 42nd workshop. Shelley has led more than 500 recorder workshops both in the United States and abroad. He was one of the original members of the professional early music group New York Pro Musica, which helped put the recorder and early music on the map. He has received a prestigious lifetime achievement award from the American Recorder Society.

Shelley is a masterful teacher whose zest for the recorder and early music remains undiminished. Shelley’s connection to WRS goes way back, and he knows many members by name. If you enjoy playing the recorder and want to improve your playing of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque composers, pencil in the date of April 7.

Look for more information soon, including a flyer to register.
