1. URGENT - LUTENIST NEEDED CONCERT -
Friday 26th March,
Would anybody be interested in performing in a one-hour lunchtime concert at Charlton House, London on the 26th March?
The ensemble currently consists of members Rie Kosaka (winner of the Ella Kidney prize) and Callum Armstrong (recordist), both currently studying at Trinity College of Music. The concert consists mainly of 16th-century Spanish repertoire and the lutenist would be asked to play some solos (no preference) and to accompany the songs (Rie has a wonderful voice and is very pleasant to work with) on either the renaissance lute or vihuela (there is no preference). The concert series and venue is very congenial, with a regular audience.
As goes rehearsals, Rie and Callum are very accommodating and its all negotiable, they'll be very pleased to have any capable player. Rie will even cover the travel fees involved. If any tablatures are awkward I myself will be very happy to do all the typesetting and to make the whole business consume as little time as possible. The concert series provides great performance opportunities and decent exposure on the London platform.
Any enquires, please don't hesitate to contact Richard MacKenzie at:firstname.lastname@example.org

5. CITTERN WANTED
A Lute Society member would like to buy a budget-priced (£500 or less) renaissance chromatic 4 course cittern, perhaps such as the ones the Early Music Shop used to sell (they are currently redesigning theirs and it won’t be ready until 2011). Having searched the web and drawn a blank, he’d be very grateful if members with a surplus cittern to sell would contact Ian at email@example.com
