Walk for Hunger

I have accepted our invitation to play the Walk for Hunger at the same time and place as the last several years.

There seems to be no enthusiasm for working up a program for this, as we have done for the last several years, so we won't do that. The March and April rehearsals will continue as usual to be dropin rehearsals with a mix of sightreading new pieces and learning the polyphonic music of the Renaissance.

If I hear from people with enthusiasm for working up a program before tomorrow's rehearsal, we can change this, but I really have canvassed all the usual suspects, and they sound like they'd just as soon not commit to major rehearsal time for the next two months. And I would prefer not to commit to rehearse a large program with a group of people who don't want to commit to rehearsing.

So this year, the the afternoon of the Walk for Hunger will be similar to what the morning has been for the last several years. People who want to play solos or duets should let me know when they plan to get there, and I'll set up a schedule. I'm hoping that there will be enough good dance musicians that in between the solos and duets we'll have a band that can play Playford and maybe Susato and Gervaise. It isn't necessary to make a commitment to doing that at this point, but I'll want people to say whether they're coming by some time in April, so that I can get you t-shirts and parking permits.

    I value kindness to human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don’t respect the law; I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper, and old men and women warmer in the winter, and happier in the summer. — Brendan Behan (1923 – 1964)
