Spring 2016 Workshop - Wendy Powers

 Saturday, March 19 8:30am through 4pm, hosted by the Rochester chapter of the American Recorder Society, and featuring Wendy Powers.

About the Music

Love reduces us to the comical and elevates us to the profound. Love brings us together and tears us apart. Love creates fierce warriors and eloquent poets. Let's explore the many meanings of love as expressed through music across the centuries.
