Performers

Judith Conrad
is here playing Piano, Virginals (an oblong
harpsichord-like keyboard instrument from 400 years ago which was the
favorite instrument of Queen Elizabeth the First of England) and
Recorders. A resident of Fall River, she is a graduate of Harvard
University and performs widely on keyboard instruments, most recently
at the Boston Early Music Festival, at the Loring-Greenough House in
Jamaica Plain, in Philadelphia and in Magnano, Italy.
Jagan Nath Singh Khalsa
studied violin in Chicago and in St. Louis.
He is a member of the Sikh ashram community in Millis, MA. His love
of music extends to orchestral, chamber music, and most especially
music for church. He also teaches violin and plays in local community
theater shows.
Mike Shand,
a physicist by trade, has studied traverso for over ten
years with Wendy Rolfe, Linda Marianiello, Anne Brigg, and Sandy
Miller. He has performed solo and in ensembles in northern New Jersey
and, more recently, in Newport, RI. He recently moved from New Jersey
to Tiverton. He is a graduate of Durfee High School.
Laura Conrad,
also a Durfee High graduate, now lives in Cambridge MA
where she directs the Cantabile Renaissance Band and studies recorder
with John Tyson. She is the webmaster for Laymusic.org and
SerpentPublications.org, two websites which support musicians who play
Renaissance Music in small groups. She is playing recorder today; she
also plays serpent, an ancestor of the tuba which was widely used as
the loudest bass instrument available between 1600 and 1850.
Paolo Do Carmo
studied classical guitar in his native Rio De Janeiro,
and has taken up early music since moving to Fall River 11 years
ago. He is playing a Vihuela today, which is an early Spanish
guitar. He also plays recorders and lute and makes instruments. He is
currently finishing a theorbo.
Ruth Shand
is the longest-serving member of the Fall River Symphony. A
former Somerset music teacher and a concert pianist, she is playing
bassoon for us today.
Dan Moniz,
a Swansea resident, is the first-chair clarinettist in the
Swansea Community Musicians.
Carroll Grillo Brown,
a Fall River resident, plays all sizes of saxophones.
The Fall River Fipple Fluters
are an amateur recorder-playing group
founded in 1991 by Judith Conrad. They play together for fun every
Friday at Four-thirty in Fall River. New members are always welcome,
willingness to try to learn recorder is the only requirement. They
play all sizes of recorder and many different styles of music, the
core repertoire being Western classical music from the 16th to the
18th centuries, the heyday of the recorder.
