According to the Internet source given above,the Recorder Orchestra of New York (RONY) is a on-profit, volunteer ensemble of recorder players that play major works written for all types of ensembles, including pieces that were composed specifically for the recorder orchestra.
Their repertoire includes selections ranging from the Medieval period to the 20th century, including premieres of original works for the recorder orchestra.
The Recorder Orchestra of New York was organized in 1994 by a group of professional and experienced amateur recorder players under the leadership of Ken Andresen, founding music director. After directing the orchestra for seven years, Ken handed his baton to Stan Davis who was director until 2002. RONY performs primarily on Long Island but also presents concerts in New York City and Connecticut. In July, 2001, the orchestra completed a highly successful tour of England.
They have posted Golden Rules For Ensemble Playing as a service to fellow musicians.
