Tuesday, November 5, is election day in Cambridge, so I will be

The Boston Recorder
Society
has announced their schedule for the
year. The first meeting is Sunday, September 23,
at 6:30pm at Lesley University’s University
Hall. (The old Sears building in Porter Square. I can’t find a
street address, but it’s Mass Avenue a bit
towards Harvard Square from the Porter Square T stop.)

The information about the new season isn’t up on the website
yet, but let me know if you want it, and I’ll
forward you the newsletter they sent me.

The BRS has recorder groups on several levels, which also
welcome bowed and plucked strings, and a loud wind group coached
by Liza Malamut which is
one of better (only?) places around to play Renaissance winds regularly.

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.
