Meeting Report

We played:


We will be meeting regularly on Tuesday nights at 7:45 PM at my place .

I expect our Spring schedule to be similar to what it's been the last few years, so we spend March and April working on music for the Walk for Hunger, which this year is on May 5. So for the next few weeks, we'll be doing some trying out of pieces that might be fun to do at the Walk. Come with your ideas.

Recorder Society

The Boston Recorder Society loud wind ensemble will continue for the second semester under Steve Lundahl. Marilyn Boenau, who coached last semester, writes:

Happy new year! As I mentioned in December I won't be able to be at some of the upcoming meetings. I'm so sorry not to be there!

Steve Lundahl has kindly agreed to work with you, starting this Sunday. In case you don't already know Steve, he is a fine sackbut and recorder player. He plays some cornetto and serpent.

Steve and I talked about what we have done in the group so far this year, specifically some of the North German repertoire with Psalm tunes in the tenor. I mentioned that you asked to work in depth on a couple of pieces.

The first meeting of the semester is this Sunday, January 20th, 6:30 - 9:00 PM. You can sign up for the group at the website, or just show up and pay the dropin rate, if you'd rather not make a 5 class commitment. They like it if you tell them you're coming beforehand.

Other Event

Music for Viols and Friends will be playing a concert of English renaissance music on Friday, January 25 at 8 pm in Lindsay Chapel, First Church in Cambridge, 11 Garden St. and also on Sunday, January 24, at 3 pm at the Somerville Museum. The concert will include works by Gibbons, Tomkins, Weelkes, Morley, Ward, Cavendish and others, performed by Michael Collver, countertenor and cornetto, and the El Dorado Ensemble (Carol Lewis, Janet Haas, Paul Johnson, Mai-Lan Broekman and Alice Mroszcyk on viols and Olav Chris Henriksen on lute and cittern).
