Greetings Everyone, and welcome!
I am so excited to see you all again and hope you had a lovely summer. The months have flown by; I can hardly believe September is already upon us. My summer was a whirlwind of events getting back in the saddle with traveling and teaching at various in-person workshops around the country. I am so very grateful for the Zoom technology that enables connections with audiences near and far, and which was an indispensable bridge during this pandemic, but my life is re-affirmed and my inner light returned by bonding and performing with cherished friends and respected colleagues.
SRS will continue to offer hybrid sessions for our monthly playing meetings, with a limit of 20 players in the sanctuary. Of course, there is no limit to the Zoomers! I look forward to leading you in our first playing session of our 2022-2023 season on Friday September 9 at 7:00 pm. I’ve chosen celebratory music by Guillaume Dufay, Francesco Corteccia and Samuel Scheidt, including the magnificent 5-part Canzona Bergamasca. A season of new beginnings, celebrations, and hope.

Zooming in from home
This will be very similar to what you’ve been doing; the main difference is that I will be leading the players in the room as opposed to “teaching to the screen.” You will see me conducting, and you will have the pleasure of playing along with your pals playing live music!
In person attendees
Please plan to arrive in the sanctuary of Maple Leaf Lutheran Church with enough time to unpack and get settled so we can start promptly at 7:00 pm. Send me an email no later than Wednesday prior to the Friday meeting with your intent to come and desired part. If you have previously attended in person and already sent me proof of vaccination along with your signed waiver there is no need to do so again.
If this is your first time attending in person, please read and comply with our safety protocols. >> Our Covid protocols.
