Plans for a unique piano gathering on Old Cape Cod are currently underway. If you are interested in joining with other piano enthusiasts, please hold the date of October 21, Saturday, open on your event calendar.

A tour will be hosted by three separate families who reside in the quaint town of Orleans. Each family is within walking distance of one another. A Mason & Hamlin grand resides at each of the homes for our listening and playing pleasure.

The Cape Cod group of piano lovers takes great pleasure in welcoming guests into their homes and hopes you will join them in what should be a day of musical bliss.

Please watch this thread for additional info as plans continue to unfold.


How does the song go; … you’re sure to fall in love with Old Cape Cod!! (you bet!!)

That sounds wonderful. I'm going to make a real effort to get to this one, even though I have to be in Sturbridge the previous week for a seminar presentation. frown

Do we know anyone from the three families from PW?

Darn, I hate to have to miss this great weekend but I'll be in AZ for a Crossfire hookup that weekend. I couldn't be much farther away. Hope you all have a fine weekend. Hopefully I'll be here for the next one.

Looking forward to seeing some of the old faces...sorry...you know what I mean. As a matter of fact...you will be seeing some old faces. smile
KathyK....you may have met John Williams and Ed Bonacci at a M&H tour. Ed's sister Roberta Lang has been to the M&H tour twice and to LeeB's party. John Williams wife Helga was at the M&H tour this past May. Marilyn and Keith Harrison will be new faces to everyone. All three homes have Mason&Hamlin grands. Roberta has a new "A". John Williams has a older "BB" and the Harrisons have a older Aeolian "A". All are wonderful folks and great hosts. It's a beautiful area and the homes are within walking distance of each other.
A fun time for sure!
Will be adding more info....stay tuned!

KathyK thanks for pointing this out. Unfortunately, even though I'm closer, I won't be able to make Oct 21 as a friend from FL is coming up that weekend. Hope you all have a great time; it sounds very fun and I bet the area will be beautiful.
I'll have to eventually make my way up to the area; now that I'm on the "right" coast smile

Kathy, maybe we could work something out. If you want to drive down the night before, you are welcome to stay here....

Has Bernard chimed in? This would be a nice trip for him (and us to enjoy his playing! wink

Kerri, I'll contact you soon.

Just checking back in here. Thanks for the added info Jeremy. Beelady, I may just take you up on that offer. I'll get back to you on that. One thing is certain - a trip to Zimmans is a must. I have a chair being held hostage by an upholsterer.

Bernard - I hope you can make it!

I've been enjoying checking-in myself on this thread and pleased to know another opportunity for us to gather is only a few weeks away.

Those of us who have had prior experiences with piano gatherings don't need to have this thread further abound with how "wonderful" this gathering will be. We know.

For those of you who have never taken the plunge and might be contemplating joining us, well, this is your opportunity to indulge yourself for a grand time. wink


I had the most delightful opportunity to enjoy a pre-piano gathering event on Sunday and began to understand what has caused this event for taking so long to be presented!!
[Linked Image]

You see, this is a close group of piano music lovers who reside within walking distance or a very short drive from one another. What appears to be happening is the group meets for, let's say, lunch and they have so much fun when they get-together they totally lose track of the purpose for their "planned" gathering.

Well, a reoccurrence of nonproductive gathering plans came close to happening at our dinner party hosted by Roberta and her brother Ed as we were having just an enjoyable evening of piano playing featuring the talents of Jerry (A441), sumptuous food, & lively conversation.

[Linked Image]

But this time the group stayed on track and most of the details were resolved.

So, stay tuned and once I have a few further miscellaneous details confirmed with our Cape Cod hosts, I'll present a more appropriate post with some actual details.

I took lots of pics but this one is especially for Lilylady as I thought of her when I saw these rosewood keys!!
[Linked Image]

By all means, please don't forget about the brunch which Jerry and Linda Gloo are planning to host on Sunday morning in honor of their Steinway O's 100th anniversary!

[Linked Image]

Thanks so much to all of you on the Cape for the pre-party invite and for making me feel so welcomed.

I'll be there! and bringing my cousin. We're going to take advantage of staying overnight so we can visit the area as well.

I saw those keys Terrytunes!!! ;-)

Have also tried to talk Steve Epstein (new AA) to join us with his wife. Poor thing, she already thinks that he has spent too much time searching for a piano, and now the parties start!

Did I miss the time?

Hi BeeLady
Glad to see that you will be joining us. Hope your family can come too. Your Steinway "A" is 105 years old this year I see. We will have to toast it!
We still talk about the good time that we had at your home.

Jeremy, I am working on the details for your Cape Escape. I don't think the family will attend but I hope to have Kathyk and Bernard in tow!

I have arranged an overnight place in Yarmouth but am still looking at other alternatives.

We so love the Eastham/Wellfleet area. It will be so nice to see it at the off season.

I can't wait to see all these M+H's that we have heard so much about!
