Celebrating a Year

9-19-16I bring armloads of music down from the attic today, to sort and take in to school tomorrow where I have a student working on a project to scan it, for preservation and to make it easier to share with other mandolinists. Some of the sheets are so brittle they feel like they will crumble in my hands. There are folders, taken from my former teacher’s house after he died, that seem to be from his teacher, the legendary Giseppe Pettine. Folders of mis-matched parts, music taken from the pages of a magazine he published, Italian music with hand-written dedications from their composers. A project intended to take a couple of hours stretches to fill the day. But, as with the basement, it’s a project I am happy to have, at least, begun.
