The Recorder Society of Connecticut will meet for a playing session from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the Unitarian Church in Westport, 10 Lyons Plains Road. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

The session will be divided into two groups, one for low-intermediate and one for high-intermediate players, and will be led by coaches Karen Snowberg and Bruce Larkin.

Snowberg is music director of the Westchester Recorder Guild. She performs on recorder and cornetto with other early- music artists.

Larkin, founder and former director of the American Recorder Teachers Association, has taught recorder for more than 30 years. A former conductor of the Recorder Orchestra of Connecticut, Larkin leads a small ensemble, the Richmond Consort, that presents ancient and modern music for recorders.

The session's emphasis will be on Renaissance and Baroque music.

Participants should bring their own recorders and music stands. Music will be provided. Newcomers are welcome.
