    Thanks for admitting me. I compose (normally*) play clarinet, sing in and conduct choirs. The normally disclaimer comes from the fact that I am recovering from a stroke (two years ago next week) and the recovery of use of my left hand remains a work-in-progress, Progress is good and steady (if generally incremental) I'll get there. This Saturday (i.e. day after tomorrow) our new choral music collective, Triad, will have our first "virtual concert." I invite you, should you be interested. After canceling our live concert last spring, we are excited to be bringing to life our first virtual concert! I hope you will join us for our fall concert from the comfort of your own home, wherever you are. We will stream the concert on our YouTube channel at 8pm [Boston, MA time] on Saturday, November 21, 2020. It will also be available afterwards. To receive an email with the link to the concert stream and to a pre-reception a half hour before, please RSVP here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScpkTvL2BXO4tMzUTD0946XR5mLThFy2RYv3ycYpU7yOeoo-Q/viewform We suggest a $10 donation, which can be made here: https://www.triadchoir.org/donate. We chose the title for this concert (I Made a Harp of Disaster), meant to be given as a live, in-person performance last spring, before we had any inkling of how our lives would change. It has turned out to be extremely apt. From a poem by Louise Glück, who recently won the Pulitzer Prize, the words resonated with us as musicians making art in an imperfect world. The disaster has shifted, but we continue to make music. We are assembling recorded tracks remotely, and are thrilled to present works both old and new. As a new music ensemble, we have adapted quickly to the new conditions -- our composers have written new pieces designed to be assembled from our individual contributions. Our concert presentation will include video program notes and various video imaginings to accompany our singing. By signing up using this form, we will email you the link to the concert and to a Zoom pre-reception, starting at 7:30, before the concert, where you can meet the artists. You can visit triadchoir.org to see the concert program and notes. This is a duo for flute and alto sax, Zen on the Wing
