Meetup #67 will feature a presentation and performance by Thereminist Victoria Lundy. Well also be at a new venue. Details below.

PRESENTATION: A CENTURY OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC
The theremin was invented by a young Russian physicist named Lev Sergevich Termen (known in the West as Léon Theremin) in 1919, so we're coming up on the 100th anniversary. It’s a electronically straightforward but musically difficult instrument, and it influenced everything that came after it. But what came before it? We’ll take a look at early electronic instruments and see how we’ve come back to the theremin after it almost disappeared in the 20th century, only to experience a renaissance in the 21st.

VENUE
Clancy’s Irish Pub in Wheat Ridge has a great traditional pub feel upstairs with a separate stage and bar down a set of stairs in the basement that will be great for performances. They offer a full pub menu and a variety of beers. Checkout pics and menus here https://iloveclancys.com.

"What do we do with our grief? When we approach others with it, they may recoil from us, wanting to focus on “happy things.” They may crowd around us with support, although the support might not be more than a digital thumbs-up and an awkward smile in public. In most cases, people don’t know what to do, especially if tears are involved."
