Constantia sent a great message to the Calontir List. Conrad, you
might think about just sticking it up on the Lilies Site (with
Constantia's approval, of course)
Greetings from Constantia Innocenti,
Music Coordinator for Lilies XVI,
I send this missive to encourage all gentles who are interested in
playing or learning to play music to attend this Lilies War!
This year there will be a five day guitar class for beginners taught
by Lord Christian d'Hiver, so dust off that guitar you never learned
to play (or borrow one!), check those strings, and join me in class.
There will also be several other music classes including beginning
recorder, Middle Eastern music, Kaval(an end-blown flute - kavals
provided!), period Scottish music and more.
I would also like to encourage all gentles who have flutes and
other band instruments from your earlier school days to bring them
with you to Lilies. I and others would be glad to help you relearn
the joy of playing music. (make sure those instruments are in good
working order - they get rickety when they sit too long!)
Throughout the war there will be many opportunities to practice
and/or perform for all levels of musicians. For more information, see
the Lilies website, http://calontir.sca.org/lilieswar/index.html
under Arts and Sciences.
Please feel free to forward this message to other Kingdom or
discussion lists that you feel might be interested.
You may also email questions/comments to me at ironfist@...
See you at LILIES!!
