Renaissance interpreters needed for school project in Arizona

Thought I would throw this one out to the whole mailing list...  Reply to Anne Roberson below...

Subject: Information

From: "Anne Roberson" <ARoberson <at> peoriaud.k12.az.us>
To: <sysop <at> HAL9K.com>


To Whom It May Concern:
 
    My name is Anne Roberson, and I am an English teacher at Ironwood High School in the Peoria District.  My class will be starting a month-long unit on the culture, history, and literature of the Renaissance.  Our primary literary piece is Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet.
    Every year that I teach this unit, I find some way to make it memorable for my students.  This year, I wanted to plan something very special.  I am writing you to ask if you would be interested in participating. 
    My students are usually quite enthusiastic about the literature of the Renaissance, but I have never provided enough information on the culture of that time period.  This year, I would like to give my students a chance to study the dance, music, and past-times of this era.  I feel that this information would benefit my students immensely and help encourage them to actively seek out educational experiences.  In addition, I would like my students to acquire a deeper appreciation for the arts. 
    I have three classes that will be participating in this unit.  If you would be interested in coming to speak to my students, please feel free to contact me.  I would greatly appreciate any information you could send, as well.
    Thank you for your time and consideration. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Anne M. Roberson

looking for musicians


Hello all..
             My name is matt and i live in macomb michigan. macomb 
is in the metro detroit area about 30 mins north of the city. like 
all of you here i very much enjoy the music of Owain Phyfe. i had 
the pleasure of meeting Owain and listening to his music at the MI 
renaissance fest. i was instantly hooked. i'm posting today in hopes 
of finding people living in the metro detroit area that might be 
interested in getting together from time to time to play 
renaissance, medieval or celtic music. i play the bass myself and 
would enjoy getting together with other musicians of ANY skill 
level, sex, age, race...ect  it also doesn't matter if you play 
electric or acoustic, sing or just write lyrics. any or all of these 
things would be most welcome. my aim here is really just to meet new 
people and have a good time. if anyone is interested please feel 
free to e-mail me! 

on a side note, thank you for putting together this group. i was 
very excited when i found out about it.

peace,
matt gowing

Hello!

You might want to try getting in touch with some of the members of the
SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) in your general area. I know
there are several active music groups up that way -- they may not be
keen on your bass for the medieval/Renaissance reenactment events, but
they may well know of people who just want to get together and jam.

You can reach Lady Elynor Grey, the Mistress of Arts & Sciences for the
Barony of Cynnabar, at  moas (at) cynnabar (dot) org 

And if you're ever in the greater Philadelphia area, you're more than
welcome to come sit in with my group!
