My previously slow descent into decrepit nerdiness just picked up pace.  I joined the Oak Park Recorder Society this week and brought the average age of the group down by 5 years, which is impressive since there are about 15 people in the group. (do the math)  In any case, it’s a pretty ambitious group playing everything from typical x-mas music (Nutcracker stuff) to Baroque to even older stuff.  Everyone has a full complement of recorders and some even have crumhorns and even a couple contrabasses. (oooOOOOooooooh)
