I am member of BOM (Recorder Orchestra Mainz - Blockflötenorchester Mainz). Before I played with DORC (Dortmund Recorder Consort), one of Germanys largest recorder orchestras and some other smaller ensembles.
In order to improve my playing I am taking recorder lessons from time to time.
My job before retirement was that of a software specialist in the central support of a computer company. I dealt with software problems of our customers. That was before the advent of the PC. At that time (1969-1990) the computers were huge cabinets filling large rooms. Besides consulting, training, and testing new software my main job was to find and correct errors in the operating system.
