Recorder Guild (VRG) is a network of recorder enthusiasts - players, performers
and teachers - that encourages the playing and performance of recorders.
Vale Colin Smith
With great sadness we advise members, recorder communitycolleagues and all our supporters that our president, Colin Smith, died suddenly but peacefully at his home last Wednesday night or Thursday morning. His contribution to the Guild, the Cranbourne recorder groups that he taught and led, the Melbourne Recorder Orchestra, the wider recorder community and many other organisations (especially welfare organisations and his church) was enormous. He will be sorely missed.
