You probably thought recorders — those two-toned wind instruments — were only for elementary school music classes.
The Recorder Orchestra of New York celebrated its 20th anniversary with a concert at the Jamesport Meeting House Saturday afternoon. The group played a variety of tunes, from medieval dances to hymns and French compositions.
“The recorder is kind of a singing substitute,” Musical Director Patsy Rogers told the crowd. “It’s a peaceful kind of instrument.”

BLUE WAVES 31, FIRST SETTLERS 2
When the bottom two high school boys bowling teams in Suffolk County League IV faced each other on Monday, they both saw it as an opportunity to walk away with points, something that hasn’t been too plentiful for either side this season.
It was Riverhead that garnered the lion’s share of them at Southold’s expense. Three Blue Waves rolled three-game series scores of 564 or higher in a 31-2 win.
