Performance Report

The weather was cool and cloudy — perfect for the walkers.
There were 5 raindrops at about noon, but nothing to justify how
freaked out some of the new performers were by the idea of playing
in the rain.

Our sets of dances by Susato and Holborne went well. We played
the Fairie
Round
on almost no rehearsal and people clapped and
cheered.

A welcome improvement this year was that we had a guest group
who alternated sets with us. This meant that our breaks could be
long enough to get to the bathroom and back, and that we got to
hear as well as play beautiful music. They opened with a
poignantly beautiful Il
bianco e dolce cigno
. Also striking was their arrangment
of “Quem Pastores”.

Walk for Hunger

We’ll be playing at our usual spot on Greenough Boulevard,
right on the river, on the Cambridge/Watertown line. Come by and
say hello, or even sit in for a tune or two. We’ll have a group
alternating sets with us who actually rehearse together, so they
should be fun to listen to as well.

If you’re signed up to play the Walk for

, don’t forget to put both the
rehearsal at 2pm on April 28, and the
performance on May 6 from 11 to 4 on your
calendar. This is a performance for 10’s of
thousands of people, not a casual drop-in
group like most of our meetings.
