No meeting in February

A belated word about our December Winterfest . . . Thank you to Kawai for hosting, to Diane Cottrell and Rachel Stevens for arranging, and to all for the fabulous food and drink offerings. Pianist Sabrina Kozack was beyond reproach for her mature and professional program, which included humorous anecdotes and "spot on" musicianship.

In January our chapter participated in a joint meeting in LA at the Colburn School. Piano tech Chris Brown presented a class on key-bedding. With the help of volunteers Bruce Stevens and Richard Davenport, Chris taught us a technique for bedding the frame without the stack or keys on board.

Part two of the afternoon featured a free-style panel discussion with Brown, Davenport, Stevens and Giovanni Skilan on the topic of rebuilding.

In February we will not have a scheduled meeting. However, we are hoping many of our members will be present at the WestPAC conference.
