Meeting report

Merrimac River, Concord, N.H, from Robert N. Dennis collection of stereoscopic views

We played:

Schedule

We meet every
Tuesday at 7:45pm at 233 Broadway, Cambridge. Please let me know
by the previous Monday night if you are planning to come on
Tuesday.

We have eight people signed up to play the Walk for
Hunger
, which means we’ll be able to do
some of our old repertoire from back when we’d
get that many people. We’ll be playing from
11-4 on May 3 on Greenough Boulevard, across
from the Cambridge Cemetary.

Someone suggested that we suspend meetings for a few weeks in
response to COVAD-19. Obviously, nobody
should come if they feel that their health is
endangered. But even if we weren’t having
official meetings, I’d still want some of my
friends to come over and play music with me.
So we will continue meeting, and if the Walk
for Hunger isn’t cancelled, at least some of
us will have learned some music we can play at
it. Even if it is cancelled, I think it will
be good to pick a playlist and work on it for
a few weeks. We can probably find somewhere
to play the program if we can’t do it there.

Walk for Hunger

The deadline for signing up to play at the Walk for Hunger is
today, Monday, March 10.

I know some of you have said verbally that you have put it on
your calendars, but I’d like to see it in writing.

The reason for this is that we are going to start working on a
set list on Tuesday, March 11, and we can’t do that without
knowing who will be playing. So please email me if you want to
play.

We played:

Schedule

We meet every
Tuesday at 7:45pm at 233 Broadway, Cambridge. Please let me know
by the previous Monday night if you are planning to come on
Tuesday. This week Monday night comes pretty early,
since on Tuesday I’ll have to get up well
before dawn to get the the polls at the crack
of dawn. If you forget and don’t let me know
before Tuesday morning, you should copy
Ishmael on your mail about your plans.

We will be playing the Walk
for Hunger
on May 3 from 11 to 4. Please
let me know by March 10 if you would like
to participate. This is less than two weeks from
today, so if you have questions about the gig,
now is the time to ask.

Tuesday, March 3 is a relatively unstructured meeting. We have
finished reading the first half of the Rore
First book of madrigals for 5 voices, and we
aren’t going to start working on the Walk for
Hunger program until Tuesday, March 10. So
think about whether there’s something you
would especially like to do for that meeting.
Since Ishmael will be running at least the
first part of the meeting, you might let him
know if there’s something you plan to request.
