Meeting report

We played:

Gig

We have an invitation to play at the JCHE on September 24 at 10:30 in the morning. If you'd like to play with us, let me know. You should expect to come to enough Tuesday meetings to learn the music, and especially to the September 22 meeting.

The program will rely heavily on the Walk for Hunger one, possibly replacing some of the Spring music with other music for more parts.

Schedule

We will continue dropin meetings with new music and requests from our repertoire on Tuesdays at 7:45pm at 233 Broadway, Cambridge.

The September 22 meeting will be restricted to performers at the September 24 gig.

Other event

The Wakefield Summer Band (me playing ophicleide on the tuba parts) will play its final concert of the season on Friday at 6:30pm. There will be a party after the concert. If there isn't too much thunder and lightning, we'll be outside at the bandstand; otherwise we'll be in the hall of the First Congregational Church.

Theres a video of some of the Recorder Masterclass on Youtube.
