The next OCRS/SCRS jointly cohosted Zoom online session will be sponsored by OCRS and we are pleased to announce that Jennifer Carpenter will be leading us. The music files she has selected and the Zoom invitation will be coming shortly to members of both organizations.

Music of the People:
folk tunes and dances from Argentina
Every part, every gesture, every note is essential. Experience captivating Argentine folk tunes and popular dances, including the tango and discover the idioms that make these tunes distinct.
In dance and in music, we must listen to and understand our musical partners in order to create the vibrant and playful gestures. Be seduced by Argentine folk and dance music! Music and MP3s you can play along with will be provided.

Lopez Pereira: duet (AT) with score
Villoldo’s El Choclo: 4 part(SATB) and score


Jennifer Carpenter’s love for the recorder began while earning her Bachelor of Music in clarinet performance at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her pursuit of early music studies brought her to study at the University of North Texas where she received a Master of Music degree in musicology with an emphasis in early music performance and is ABD (all but dissertation) for her PhD in the same field from UNT. 

As a recorder player, Jennifer performs regularly as a soloist and in ensembles and is a member of the early music ensembles Parish House Baroque and Byrd on a Wire. She enjoys teaching as much as performing. In addition to teaching private lessons, both in person and online, Jennifer has been on the faculty of early music workshops across the southwest and west. Her enthusiasm for working with amateur recorder players has led her to serve on the Board of Directors of the American Recorder Society where she recently finished her 8th and final year. Jennifer was the music director of the Dallas Recorder Society from 2009-2014 and is currently serving as a co-director for the Denver Recorder Society. Happily a resident of Colorado Springs, she enjoys being a part of the early music scene in Colorado.
