In Concert: The New England String Ensemble

A limited number of BAS Members will exchange their amplifiers, speakers, and tiny listening rooms for the real thing, a live concert. Our monthly meeting will be held at Harvard University's Sanders Theatre. Walter Swanbon, the owner of the Fidelis Audio/Video store in Salem, NH, has graciously donated to the New England String Ensemble to make this happen for BAS. Walter is also doing this to expand the awareness of the NE String Ensemble throughout greater Boston. They are an excellent group he says and BAS members David Temple, Steve Owades, and Micha Schattner agree. We are in for a treat says David Temple. "My wife and I have been season ticket-holders since about 1997". Wyner, the conductor, was originally a violinist. She, according to Temple, was a locally prominent soprano, singing with the BSO in the 1980s. Injuries from a bicycle accident ended her singing career, after which, she took up conducting.

There are twenty tickets available. Please come one-half hour prior to the concert. To reserve a ticket, call David Hadaway: 603-899-5121 or e-mail him at: Directions to the BAS meeting room will be indicated at the entrance. The tickets will be passed out on a first come, first served basis. Without a free ticket the concert is $30.00. The New England String Ensemble ( will be playing G F Handel: Concerto Grosso in D Minor, Op. 6 No. 20; Yehudi Wyner: Tuscan Triptych: Echoes of Hannibal; and Ernest Chausson: Concerto for violin, piano, and strings.

Jane Pipik, WGBH Recording Engineer, will be our host for the evening. She is responsible for the stereo and the surround recording that will be taking place during the concert. After the concert, she and Micha will lead us on a tour and explain the why and the how of microphone placement for the different recording menus.
