March 11th Meeting at IPC

Please join us Monday, March 11th at 6 PM for dinner in the Great Hall of Independent Presbyterian Church. Jeff McLelland is our host for this month's activities.

This month's menu, prepared by Southern Chic Catering, is beef stroganoff served over noodles, mixed veggies, salad, and yeast rolls, with chocolate cake and berries for dessert. Beverages include tea and water. The cost is $16.00.

At 7 PM Amy McLelland will speak on The Need for Speed: An introduction to the Taubman approach and important principles of coordinate movement which allow musicians to overcome technical limitation and tension. As a student of Edna Golandsky and John Bloomfield since 1996, assistant teacher at the Golandsky Piano Institute Summer Symposiums since 2000, and a recipient of certification at the instructor level with the Golandsky Piano Institute in 2011, Amy is highly qualified to discuss the mostly invisible motions which function underneath a tension-free, facile, virtuoso technique. “If it hurts here, check there” will be a recurring theme throughout the lecture as many of the different “enemies” of speed, clarity, brilliance, and ease are examined.

Reservations are now closed, but if you find you must cancel your reservation or if you'd like to see if any cancelled reservations are available, please contact Mike Burt at (205) 201-3838 or for assistance.
