Feedback from a recent participant
"This was my third year at AEM NYC Recorder. I am again very pleased with it and hope to continue again next year. Mainly, recently, a solo armchair player, I am thrilled that an event like this is available to me. And each year I come away from the event with new music appreciation, acquaintances, skills, and memories."
