2023 MEETING DATES
CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST!
Our August 27 meeting will be conducted by Susan Samuelson and will be devoted to preparation and practice for TEMS' St. Andrew's Christmas program which we will present in December. We will not be doing the "Dickens' Christmas Carol" this year. The program will include pieces by the entire society as well as performances by individual ensembles. Why begin rehearsals so early? Because our September and October meetings will be led by guest Jody Miller and there will be no meeting in November due to Thanksgiving. We will meet on Dec. 3rd to rehearse our Christmas program and again on Dec. 10th as a dress rehearsal for our program on Dec. 11th.
JODY MILLER GUEST CONDUCTS
We are fortunate to host Jody Miller for our September and October meetings this year as well as our March and April meetings in 2024. An Atlanta native, Jody is a nationally known performer and teacher in the recorder and early music community. He is director of the Mountain Collegium Early Music Workshop and a member of the ARS board of directors. For more information please visit Jody's website at https://fippleflute.com.
Jody's visits are subsidized through a grant from the American Recorder Society's Traveling Teacher Program. This program provides an incredible opportunity for groups like ours to benefit from music educators who live outside our area.

GUEST ATTENDEES FOR JODY'S MEETINGS
TEMS meetings are held in Herman Hall where space is somewhat limited. With the usual array of instruments and music stands, we can only accommodate five more players in addition to our regular members. Non-members who wish to attend will need to preregister on a first come, first served basis. There will be a $15 fee for these attendees. There is no fee for TEMS members. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Herman Hall is located in the basement of the St. Andrew's Sanctuary. The church parking lot is just across the street (Kensington) and entrance to the hall is through the covered side door and down the stairs.
Note the new permanent location for our TEMS meetings in Herman Hall.
We will continue to meet
from 1:30 to 4:00.
