Meeting Report

We played:


We will be meeting regularly on
Tuesday nights at 7:45 PM at

my place


I expect our Spring schedule to be similar to what it’s been the last
few years, so we spend March and April working on music for the Walk
for Hunger, which this year is on May 5. So for the next few weeks,
we’ll be doing some trying out of pieces that might be fun to do at
the Walk. Come with your ideas.

Recorder Society


Boston Recorder Society

loud wind ensemble will continue for the
second semester under Steve Lundahl.
Marilyn Boenau, who coached last semester, writes:

Happy new year! As I mentioned in December I won’t be able to be at
some of the upcoming meetings. I’m so sorry not to be there!

Steve Lundahl has kindly agreed to work with you, starting this
Sunday. In case you don’t already know Steve, he is a fine sackbut and
recorder player. He plays some cornetto and serpent.

Steve and I talked about what we have done in the group so far this
year, specifically some of the North German repertoire with Psalm
tunes in the tenor. I mentioned that you asked to work in depth on a
couple of pieces.

The first meeting of the semester is this Sunday, January 20th, 6:30 –
9:00 PM. You can sign up for the group at the website, or just show up and pay
the dropin rate, if you’d rather not make a 5 class commitment. They
like it if you tell them you’re coming beforehand.

Other Event

Music for Viols and Friends will be playing a concert of English
renaissance music on Friday, January 25 at 8 pm in Lindsay Chapel,
First Church in Cambridge, 11 Garden St. and also on Sunday, January
24, at 3 pm at the Somerville Museum. The concert will include works
by Gibbons, Tomkins, Weelkes, Morley, Ward, Cavendish and others,
performed by Michael Collver, countertenor and cornetto, and the El
Dorado Ensemble (Carol Lewis, Janet Haas, Paul Johnson, Mai-Lan
Broekman and Alice Mroszcyk on viols and Olav Chris Henriksen on lute
and cittern).
