Print Friendly

The Recorder Orchestra of New York brings you an afternoon of music, “A Recorder Tapestry,” on Saturday, April 27 at 4 p.m at the Jamesport Meeting House.

This talented group of 18 musicians (including four North Fork residents) will entertain you in surprising musical ways – from a Medieval dance tune to a 21st-century tango, and from Renaissance madrigals to Baroque works by Bach and Corelli, as well as the contemporary “Rhapsody for Bass Clarinet and Recorder Orchestra.” The orchestra performs on recorders of many shapes and sizes (from six inches to six feet in length), producing a rich, sweet sound in this acoustically superb space. Tickets $15 (students $10). For more information call 631-734-7485.

The Jamesport Meeting House, built in 1731 by the pioneers of Riverhead Town, is the oldest public building on the East End of Long Island and a direct connection with the area’s Puritan heritage.  It was acquired in 2008 by the Jamesport Meeting House Preservation Trust to restore and keep it in community hands forever.  The Meeting House, a Riverhead town landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places, is located at the corner of Manor Lane and Main Road in the center of the Jamesport Hamlet Historic district.  For information about the Preservation Trust and the Meeting House, go to http://www.jamesportmeetinghouse.org.
