I got an email this morning from Pierre Ribo:
Let me introduce myself. My name is Pierre Ribo and I am a serpent maker in Brussels, Belgium.
I will be present at the Boston Early Music Festival from June 12th until the 15th to present four of my serpents (with four keys and 6 holes church serpent).
My purpose is to propose my instruments in the USA and also to meet musicians, since their reactions are very important to me.
I would be pleased to meet you during my stay in Boston, if possible for you.
In case you would know other musicians interested in the serpent, may I ask you to forward this mail or spread the word around you?
The official concert schedule is as much of an early brass wasteland as ever, but it looks like there will at least be a few serpents at the exhibition.
