The Seattle Recorder Society
Last updated on: July 1, 2018
Greetings everyone! Ah, blessed be the spring! As I sit here on my sun-drenched deck sipping tea reflecting on the events of our past season I am feeling grateful and fulfilled. I’d like to extend a huge thank you to all the board members behind the scenes who help make this wonderful organization run smoothly; it is be-cause of you that we continue to be successful year after year. Thank you to all our current, past and fu-ture Presidents, thank you to everyone who sets up tables and chairs at our meetings, thank you to all who bring food, thank you Hanan for your tireless help organizing and schlepping the library bins, thank you Mike for all the hours that go into this newsletter, thank you Bill for the count-less, beautiful photos, thank you Charles for simply everything that happens on our website, thank you Kathleen for the incredible notes you take at meetings, thank you Richard for expertly balancing our budget, thank you Miyo and Laura for making sure our backroom gang is well supported and nurtured, thank you Betty for making sure everyone gets all our newsletters and extra announce-ments, thank you Carolyn for keeping us all on track with our bylaws whenever we sway off the path, and thank you all dear members for your support and dedi-cation through the year in spite of inclement weather on stormy winter nights. It is a pleasure to stand before you and be your music director. Please let me know if you have any special requests for the music that we play next season.
I am so excited to hear what you all have planned for Members’ Night. This is quite the unique tradition and one of my favorite events of the year. It is always a joy to hear and see everyone’s progress from year to year, and witness the vari-ety, innovation and creativity that goes into the planning. I love hearing estab-lished ensembles return with new and wonderful pieces, and I especially love the courage of all those who step out of their comfort zone to perform in front of others.
The Members Night program is open to “members-in-good-standing.” Please be sure that you have paid your dues for 2018-2019. Information you need to provide: 1) who will play, 2) the title and composer of the work, 3) the approximate timing, and 4) the name of at least one “member-in-good-standing” in your ensemble. In order to provide opportunities for all interested performers, we ask that each offering be no longer than five minutes, including any commentary.
