Other events

Movie night

My current Netflix movie is Mr. Turner,
a biopic of the
life of J.M.W. Turner. Based on the previews and reviews, it’s
visually quite good, although of course the plot is predictable.

I’ll be watching it on Thursday, starting around 8. If people want to
come over and watch with me, we’ll be organizing a pot luck supper about
7:30. Let me know if you’re coming and what you want to bring. I get
the giant box of greens from the farm share that day. I don’t yet know
what’s in in, but I’ll cook or dress some of it, and that will be my

Recorder Recital

John Tyson’s student recital is this Saturday, June 20, at
5:30pm in the Carr Organ Room at New England Conservatory. If you
want to hear lots of recorder playing, this is a good
place to do it. I will be playing some of the Lupacchino and
Tasso duets from Il Primo Libro a due voci, mostly
with John on two recorders, but there will be one on serpent and

Pig roast

The homebrew club is having
their annual pig roast on Saturday, June 27, starting at 5 pm,
with the pig scheduled to be ready at 8 pm. If we want to play
anything from printed music, we should plan to do it before dark,
but impromptu music without stands and dots on paper is possible
at any time. Let me know if you want to come, and I’ll sign you
up as my guest.

Serpent Publications booth at Amherst Early Music Festival

On July 11 and 12, Serpent Publications will have a booth at
the Amherst Exhibition in New London, Connecticut. The idea is
that we’ll have lots of music printed, and encourage people to try
playing from it. So if you’d like to be a booth babe, let me
know. I’ll be staying around Saturday evening and going to the
concert (not usually a great concert, but a good way to see what early
music people are doing these days) and the party (usually pretty good).
