AMC Mountains and Music - Come with me!

Wouldn't you just love to go on vacation? Just for a weekend? The last weekend in April sounds good, doesn't it? Perhaps somewhere that has hiking, maybe a climbing wall? Oh, and some canoeing? And let's not forget the opportunity to make some music, both in a large chorus or orchestra and also in small pick-up chamber groups? You could bring that quartet you can never get anyone to try with you, and assemble a group to play it before lacing up your hiking boots.

Well, you're in luck! The Appalachian Mountain Club's Boston Chapter hosts a Mountains and Music weekend three times a year. The next weekend will be April 28-30, and yours truly will be the chorus director! (If you are a long-time reader, you may remember that I have done this before, and had a great time.) We need more people in the choir - we have no basses and few tenors right now, so we've actually decided go to with the Pergolesi Stabat Mater as the joint choral/orchestral piece. And if you are a stellar alto, you might get to do the alto solos (I already have a stellar soprano soloist - sorry, soprani!)

You can find more information and also a registration form here. The registration deadline is this Friday. Please sign up - it would be great to see some more friendly faces there!


  1. Shoot! I'm too late, but I want to come! Let me know when you're doing another one. Does it matter that I don't live in Boston?

  2. Hi Christianne!

    Maybe it's not too late - they might let you sign up late! I know they usually plan for some late registration. Just tell them you're a strong singer and a friend of mine. :) There might be a late fee, though.

    And regardless, I will definitely tell you the next time - I thought maybe it would be too far for a weekend, so I didn't think about the fact that NJ people might be interested.
