Needed: Recorder builder in Houston

Posted by Michaela Langwieser Dear ladies and sirs, I live in Austria where  I have studied ancient music. During summer I am going to be in Houston (August) with my husband, who is from Houston. Last time we were there, it was very difficult for me to find information about concerts or workshops in that area. I would really appreciate it if you could send me some information about people that build recorders in and around Houston and whether there are concerts during that time. Or if you know about a good instrument-store. I would like to buy a tenor-recorder. very many thanks in advance Michaela Langwieser (direct replies to info@HoustonEarlyMusic.org)
