* An Advanced Loud Band Intensive Reunion!
MEMF’s mini festival in April offers a wonderful opportunity for ALBI alumni and others to gather once more to make professional-quality music on renaissance cornetti, shawms, sackbuts and dulcians. A day of reading and rehearsing a variety of repertoire will form a well-tuned, practiced and historically-informed ensemble that will have the opportunity to perform for an audience at the All-Festival concert on Sunday of the festival weekend. Attendance by permission or invitation: contact Bob Wiemken, bob@piffaro.com
