Meeting Report

We played:

Schedule

We will be meeting as usual on Tuesdays at 7:45 PM at my place.

Tuesday February 28 will not be a dropin rehearsal, as the Morley group will pre-empt that time.

On March 6, I will be working at the polls for the presidential primary, so someone will have to open up if we want to meet that night.

Walk for Hunger

We have again been invited to play at the Walk for Hunger, in our usual time and place. This year it's on May 6, and we'll probably be playing informally starting at 10 am and doing our usual two sets at noon and 2 pm.

If you'd like to play, please let me know as soon as possible. In addition to being available on May 6, you should also plan to come for both of the Tuesdays immediately before that (April 24 and May 1), and as many other Tuesdays in March and April as you need to learn the music.

I would like to have a playlist by the beginning of March, but I can't do that until I have the list of performers, so please let me know as soon as you can.

Also let me know if there are pieces you'd particularly like to play, or pieces that would cause you to not want to play if they appeared on the playlist. We would like to have a mix of the complicated polyphony we spend most of our time on and simpler polyphony that comes across better in the noisy outdoor setting. We need to spend at least half the time on instruments, since it's quite strenuous singing in that setting.

    With all these books, as with any on the subject, do not expect to turn yourself into an expert via the printed word alone. You can commit to memory everything Lichine has to say about Gevrey-Chambertin and still have no idea whether you would like the wine. — Kingsley Amis, On Drink
