MPRO-Interest Email List

The MPRO-Interest@GoogleGroups.com email list has been set up for online email distribution of general publicity items such as concerts and workshops. This list is for those interested in MPRO and other local recorder events. The list is moderated by Christopher Flake so only approved emails are distributed - thus reducing duplication and stopping spam. Anyone in the group may post emails to the list, but only publicity items of interest to MPRO and our audience will be allowed.

Your email is kept private to all unless you submit an email for distribution.

Attention non-MPRO members with Publicity Announcements : This is the email list that you should send your concert, workshop, and other recorder-related announcements to. As long as it is deemed appropriate and of general interest to MPRO members, the moderator will approve your email and it will be distributed to MPRO members. Simply send your announcement to MPRO-Interest@GoogleGroups.com and it will be passed on to the MPRO membership by the group moderator.


MPRO Instrument Lending Library

The MPRO has received donations of instruments (recorders and other early music instruments) over the years, and we occasionally purchase specialty instruments for use by the orchestra members in concerts. These instruments are available for MPRO Participating Members to borrow. The complete list of instruments can be found here:

MPRO Instruments for Loan

And anyone borrowing an instrument is accepting the obligations to:

  • take care of the instrument as if it was your own, keeping it safe and undamaged
  • return the instrument if you decide to leave the orchestra or if requested by the Director or MPRO Board
  • return the instrument at the end of the season (term of loan is one season).
  • If you are a registered Participating Member of MPRO and would like to borrow an instrument, please contact the Webmaster via email or at an MPRO rehearsal and give him the ID number of the instrument(s) you are interested in. Instruments borrowed may be "recalled" if the orchestra has need of a particular instrument in a concert.
