Bill Nesbitt & Tickle Cove Pond

Hey there!

We’ve got something special planned for tomorrow – our own Bill Nesbitt is going to introduce us to Tickle Cove Pond, a now almost iconic tune that’ll transport you to the rocky shores of Bonavista Bay Newfoundland, where the weather is continually changeable but the people are always warm.

Get off your keister and register NOW for the upcoming Sight Reading workshop, hosted by local musician Geoff Ball. Taking place on the two consecutive Tuesday evenings of March 2nd and 9th, 7pm to 9pm, you’ll get some insider info on how to better navigate a score like a pro. Send your registration fee of $25 to by e-transfer, and then send and email to confirming your registration. We need a minimum of 10 participants for this event to go forward.

Alas, our usual supplier of blueberries does not have any stock to sell us this winter – because the weather that harvest year was not favourable for fruiting. We’re currently looking into the possibility of an on-line silent auction idea. . . if any of you have an alternative fundraising plans, please share it! Times are tough.

And further on that pesky virus, we will be continuing with our Zoom sessions this term as our original hope of actually getting together in the flesh this spring has been dashed. We’ll carry on up to March 13th, take a week break, resume again on March 27th, and continue for the next 6 to 8 weeks.

Our community is facing some big challenges and I want to reassure everyone that there are many of us actively pursuing solutions. We’re currently seeking new music directors as well as searching for an alternative venue where we can gather again once we’re allowed to! If any of you have some ideas, please do not hesitate to share them – collective intelligence is an amazing thing.

Until tomorrow,

Brenda Atkinson
