Playing opportunities

The West
Gallery Quire
will resume meeting on
September 8 at 2pm at the Newton Highlands
Congregational Church
. It’s open to all
singers and players of melody instruments. It’s
a different take on church music than what most
of us grew up with, and it’s also your best place
to sing with a serpent.

The Boston Recorder
Society
will also presumably start up again in September, but
they haven’t gotten around to telling anybody when. I hope it’s
because all the people who do that work have been off having
summer fun and are just starting to get back to organizing
meetings. I will let you know when I find out the details, or you
can check their web page.

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

Andover, MA and tomorrow at 8:00pm

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.
