Our last meeting was a real hit! Ron & Denise Kneale hosted a BBQ potluck at their home. A great time was had by all.
This month, Curtis Berak will begin his program, "All About Harpsichords," to be concluded in November. Curtis is renowned as an expert in harpsichord and fortepiano. He supplies keyboards for the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and many other venues. He not only has a rental business, but repairs and builds harpsichords as well.
Between his two programs on harpsichords, in October, we will join the Orange County Chapter for their annual tool auction.
We regret to announce the passing of John Grutzmacher, RPT. John joined the Pomona Valley Chapter in 1977, remained a very active member of the chapter until his retirement, and moved to Northern California, keeping his membership 'til his passing. John was also a skilled wood carver. John included among his clients the Los Angeles Music Center. He leaves his wife of 59 years, Carmelita, after a short period of declining health.
