If you know of other recorder or early music workshops on the West Coast (or elsewhere if they would be of interest to players in Southern California), please contact the webmaster. Include “OCRS” in the subject line.


The San Diego County Recorder Society’s annual workshop this year (October 27th) features Tom Axworthy as the conductor. The SDCRS workshops are always excellent.

If you haven’t yet signed up for the October 27 workshop with Tom Axworthy, now is the time to do that. A registration form with information is is here: SD Workshop Registration form 2018

Tom Axworthy is a Los Angeles based recorder teacher and performer who directs the Los Angeles Recorder Orchestra and provides private lessons. He has a degree in Musicology from California State University and is founder-director of the Southern California Early Wind Consort and a member of the Renaissance Players. At our all-day SDCRS workshop on October 27, he will conduct music of Salamone Rossi and Marin Marais.

If you have questions, or if you aren’t sure you will be able to attend and are thinking of walking in to join the workshop on Saturday, October 27 instead of registering in advance, please contact Harvey Winokur at or 619.334.1993. We want to be sure that everyone who comes to the workshop has the music and that we have enough lunch available. Bring your own music stand, and bring your own copy of the music which will be emailed to those who have signed up to attend.

We’re looking forward to playing, improving our skill and technique, and enjoying ocean views from the 4th floor solarium at Wesley Palms on October 27. If you are also celebrating Halloween or Dia de los Muertos on that Saturday, feel free to come in costume.
