Faculty perform chamber music at the 2014 Recorder Workshops.

Directed by recorder players Rotem Gilbert and Hanneke van Proosdij, the SFEMS Recorder Workshops are located in the intimate setting of St. Albert’s Priory on the border of Oakland and Berkeley, California. These workshops feature every aspect of music making for the recorder, including technique classes, Renaissance recorder consort, medieval to contemporary music and consort music. Featuring small class sizes and an international faculty, they invite intermediate to advanced recorder players to sign up for one or both weeks. Each week concludes with a spectacular performance of all workshop participants in the Recorder Orchestra at St. Albert’s beautiful chapel. Evening events include faculty concerts, lecture demonstrations and a focused Wednesday mini-workshop.
