  • We would love to have more bassoonists coming along. Jan Lorier has generously offered the following incentive: For any existing NZDRS member who brings along a bassoonist who has not been before, she will reward both with chocolate. This first chamber music session will be at member rates for the new person. If the new bassoonist comes to the next chamber music club meeting, with the member who introduced them, AND joins the NZDRS at that second session, each gets one Event movie pass, which she will also sponsor!
  • We have new music for 3 oboes so come along and try it.
