Rocky XII, “Springtime in the
May 19-21, 2017, Estes Park, Colorado
REGISTRATION, TUITION, & FEES
Rocky XII is the twelfth running of the biennial spring workshop
hosted by the Denver Chapter of the American Recorder Society.
The 2017 edition runs from Friday afternoon May 19th until Sunday
noon May 21st. This interval will be packed with a combination
of serious instruction and fun playing. Whatever your skill
level, you will find this a worthwhile and enjoyable experience.
The workshop is organized into three half-day sessions—Saturday
morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. Each period
offers a choice of three sessions directed by our outstanding
faculty. In addition, Friday and Saturday evening will feature
a “Big Bash” group play-along led by one of our
faculty members. As with previous Rockys, there will be an informal
drop-in playing session Friday afternoon for anyone who wants
to participate after signing in. In addition, we will have master
luthier and instrument technician John Orth on site for instrument
tune-ups and repairs.
Location and Facilities: The YMCA of the Rockies is a large,
family-oriented facility complex with excellent group facilities
We have reserved a block of rooms for the workshop, along with
well-equipped meeting rooms. Registration includes room and
board. Rooms are comfortable hotel-style rooms with two queen
beds and an optional futon. Meals are served buffet-style at
a nearby dining hall. Handicap rooms are available and there
are parking lots right outside the door of our lodge and close
to the dining facility. There is an elevator within the lodge.

It is considered the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park,
also just a few miles from the YMCA. While you won’t have
time to explore the gift shops and restaurants of Estes Park
nor the grandeur of Rocky Mountain National Park during our
weekend, you well might well consider extending your stay to
enjoy this part of Colorado.
