A Message from ARS President

Thank you for making a recorder community! Thank you, thank you, thank you! The American Recorder Society thanks you for all you do. • Thank you for clapping for your friends, no matter what.
• Thank you for explaining to airport security what those tubes are that you are carrying.
• Thank you for moving furniture so your friends can come over and play.
• Thank you for practicing sopranino in the basement, when requested.
• Thank you for sharing your instruments, but not your colds.
• Thank you for overcoming stage fright.
• Thank you for happily answering when asked, “Isn’t that what 2nd graders play?”
• Thank you for playing songs that were hits before your mother’s mother’s mother’s mother’s mother’s mother’s mother’s mother’s mother was born.
• Thank you for your passion for the recorder. We want to celebrate you, to celebrate all the ways you support our recorder community. Keep an eye out this month for the stories you’ve made possible and get ready to hear it over and over: thank you.
From all of us at the American Recorder Society, thank you for being a member of our community.

Yours, David Podeschi, ARS Board President
