This week’s SOHIP concert,
If Music Be the Food of Loved, by the 7 Hills

Catherine Stein, woodwinds and voice – Matthew Stein, dulcian
Daniel Stillman, woodwinds). I heard some of the Zucchini at Amherst,

as good as the stuff everybody knows. Tonight at at 8:00pm

210 Lowell Street
Andover, MA and tomorrow at 8:00pm
Art Gallery at
University Lutheran Church

Listening to recorder playing opportunity

John Tyson’s student recital will take place on Sunday, June 9
at 7pm or so at Longwood Towers, Brookline. I’ll be playing, and so will some other
good players. If you’re interested in what amateurs can
learn to do with a recorder, it’s a good opportunity to
hear a lot of playing on numerous levels.
