The members of ABP have been performing together for nearly 20 years, and we have decided that it’s time for a change. The organization will be re-formed under new leadership, that of Mary Springfels, and with a new name, Severall Friends. Mary is a fine viola da gamba player with many years of experience and many ideas for programming and educational outreach. The name comes from a 17th-century publication of music by Matthew Locke. Please be on the lookout for mailings from this “new” ensemble.
We are so appreciative of the consistent support and enthusiasm you’ve shown over the years for us and for Baroque music. We simply could not have continued for so many years without it.
—Susan, MaryAnn, and Mary
