News of the weeks of December 18 and 25, 2012, and January 1, 2013

Meeting Report

We played:


Tomorrow, January 1, we will be having our annual holiday party, which
this year is on New Year’s Day, since there wasn’t a good weekend day
in December to schedule it. So if you show up at the usual time,
there will be people to play with and things to eat and drink, but
since the party starts at 4, you might miss some of the best food, or
not be able to talk to people who have already left.

After this, we will return to our regularly scheduled meetings on
Tuesday nights at 7:45 PM at

my place



There are invitations in two formats:

foldable into quarter-page,


two-sided, with a Cantabile Band flyer on the back


Print them out and give them to all your friends who might be
interested. We need to do some rebuilding this year, since we’ve at
least temporarily lost a couple of good people, and this is a good way
for people who might be interested in playing with us to get their
feet wet.

Let me know if you intend to come, especially if
you’re bringing something useful, but also feel free to drop in.

They seem to have fixed the bug where 2012 was hard-coded in the
Parking Consideration Application, so I have submitted it. (Probably
by hard-coding 2013.) I suspect
it doesn’t matter and they will be treating New Year’s Day as an
honorary Sunday, where permit parking restrictions don’t apply. I
will have two visitor permits, and can probably borrow some more, so
if the consideration doesn’t come through and you’re worried, we can
probably get you a permit. If the permit does come through, I think
there will be something I can print so you can put it on your
windshield. If you have RSVP’d and live outside of Cambridge, I can
email you the thing to print out.

Other Event

If you haven’t sung the Messiah in too long, or you would like to play
it, there will be a SING IT YOURSELF MESSIAH on Sunday, January 6,
2013 at 3:00 p.m. directed from the piano by Judy Conrad.

Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd
383 Old North Road
Kingston, Rhode Island

Instrumentalists welcome

We will sing most of Part One plus Hallelujah and Amen;

All arias will be sung by sections; other arias and choruses will be included by request.

A Simple Soup Supper follows the event.

Admission free but donations, which will benefit Welcome House, are
encouraged. Scores and instrumental parts will be provided, or bring
your own.
