Dear members of the Mid-Peninsula Recorder Orchestra,

Please note that sopranino, great bass and contrabass recorders as well as bassoon will be needed at all three meetings, and krummhorns are called for at the meetings on December 18 and January 22.  Please note as well that these meetings will start at 7:00 P.M.  As a reminder for those who are located too far to attend in person, the meetings will also be streamed via Zoom.  Ray White will be sending out invitations to all MPRO members with links to the hybrid Zoom meetings.  Please contact him at <rayhwhite@yahoo.com> if you do not receive an invitation
