To all our lyre friends, greetings from Olivia, Mary Lynn, Kristen, Nancy, Roblyn, Burley, and Christina (from left to right, all Michigan players who have attended international lyre conferences). We've been meeting at the Channers' to prepare for the Michaelmas Festival. At each of the eight yearly festivals our lyres are sounding their healing message. This time the lyres and chrotta will be giving familiar music, the first Bach Prelude for Cello and Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, a not-so-familiar sounding.
