Schedule

We will be meeting on Tuesdays at 7:45pm at 233 Broadway, as
long as enough people have told me by Monday night that they want
to come.

We’ve started working on the repertoire for the Walk for Hunger, so if you’re
thinking about joining us, you should also think about
coming on Tuesdays. If you know anyone who should be thinking
about joining us, now is the time to start twisting arms.

Holbein Dance of Death

Hans Holbein’s The Dance of Death, a series of forty-one miniature woodcuts about the triumph of death, was produced between 1523 and 1525. In making these depictions, the Cambridge scholar Ulinka Rublack observes, Holbein was intensely engaged with the problem of corruption in politics.
