From the Music Director - Vicki Boeckman:
All sizes of recorders and viols are welcome
Happy Solstice everyone! It is the eve of the Winter Solstice as I write. The longest, darkest night of the year. As you read this the hectic holidays will be behind and the new year ahead - eagerly awaiting embarkment. This time of year is naturally filled with myriad feelings and emotions all clamoring for recognition as they get sorted out. Hearts are full of love and joy as we gather with family and friends, yet heavy with local news and national and global injustices. We are in a time of great uncertainty and rapid change. I find great solace in music be it listening to music, reading about music or especially playing music with friends. I cannot imagine a life without music and I am very fortunate to be able do what I love for a living. Every day that I get to grow and learn through teaching my students or by performing in front of an audience is a gift of which I am constantly reminded.
I look forward to embarking on a new calendar year and leading the playing session on January 5th. There is no opening program, so we will spend the entire time playing music that heralds the light and uplifts the human spirit.
All sizes of recorders and viols welcome. See you soon!
