October 21st (3rd Thursday)
Bring a chair!
Our October 21st meeting will be held at Kevin Fryer's studio where Kevin a harpsichord maker will introduce us to his art. He became interested in harpsichords in the late 70's. In 1980 he built a Flemish Single from Zuchermann Harpsichords Inc. He studied with Kathy Roberts Perl who is a teacher and performer. She continues to be his teacher and advisor. He went into business in 1984 and soon became an agent for Zuchermann Harpsichords. In 1992, he left to pursue building from historical designs. He is also active in a number of arts organizations. From 1985 to 1995, he worked with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra as a stage manager, harpsichord technician and tour manager. He also worked with the Carmel Bach Festival from 1988 to 1997. He was on the Board of Directors of the San Francisco Early Music Society including being Board President from 1989 to 1992. Since 1989 his studio has been in the Bayview district. He has shared his space with a number of distinguished artists and believes that by sharing information, ideas and resources, it can advance the understanding and deepen the appreciation of the field of Early Music. Kevin has made many presentations to diverse groups so we are in for a treat in a field most of our woodworkers have not ventured into. Kevin's web site is http://www.kevinfryer.net.
