The Rio Grande Recorder Society is a chapter of the American Recorder Society
Founded in 1991, our mission is to promote interest in playing recorders and
other early music instruments. We provide the opportunity for players of
all levels to meet others and develop their musical skills.
Our Chapter hosted a fantastic workshop in September. Faculty members were Adam Gilbert, Rotem Gilbert, Mary Springfels, and Dale Taylor

members from all over southern New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. The Chapter
