Anne Timberlake conducting
“Scintillating Senfl”

Anne TimberlakeScintillating Senfl

Learn to love the warm, eclectic music of sixteenth-century composer Ludwig Senfl, who survived a hunting accident, job loss, and the Inquisition to become one of the most influential composers of his day.

Anne Timberlake has appeared across the United States performing repertoire from Bach to twenty-first-century premieres to Celtic tunes. She holds degrees in recorder performance from Oberlin Conservatory, where she studied with Alison Melville, and Indiana University, where she studied with Eva Legene and won the 2007 Early Music Institute Concerto Competition. Critics have praised her “fine technique and stylishness,” “unexpectedly rich lyricism”
(Letter V), and “dazzling playing” (Chicago Classical Review).
Anne is a founding member of the ensemble Wayward Sisters, specializing in music of the early baroque. In 2011, Wayward Sisters won Early Music America’s Naxos Recording Competition. Wayward Sisters released their debut CD on the Naxos label in 2014.
Anne enjoys teaching as well as playing. In addition to teaching private, group and online recorder lessons, Anne has coached through Indiana University’s Pre-College Recorder Program, the San Francisco Early Music Society, the Amherst Early Music Festival, Virginia Baroque Performance Institute, Mountain Collegium, and for numerous ARS chapters. Anne currently resides in St. Louis, MO. Find Anne at www.annetimberlake.com

A Note from the OCRS President

October’s conductor will be Anne Timberlake who will be conducting “Scintillating Senfl”. For more information about Anne, see above.  Ludwig Senfl was a composer who lived around 1500, and he wrote in the Franco-Flemish polyphonic style.  I’m looking forward to a scintillating meeting.

Last weekend I went to a concert by the Pacific Symphony at Segerstrom Hall.  It was an exuberant concert that ended with Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony. It was nice to hear a concert, live. 

Interested in an in-person meeting?

If at least 15 members agree to attend an in-person meeting on the second Friday evening of either November or December or both, I’ll organize one at the usual OCRS meeting location.  The conductors would be Alex Opsahl for November and Sally Price for December.  A member would need to be fully vaccinated in order to attend, masks would be required except when playing, and individual player’s chairs would be set up with social distancing in mind.  Drop me a note at c.jackson@ieee.org, or give me a call or text at 310-291-3329.  In any event, we will have the joint OCRS/SCRS online meeting on Nov. 6.

For our meeting last month, I got a tablet so that I would not have to print the music.  My home printer is slow, and most of the time, I make a mistake and don’t print some of the music.  And, I’m tired of rand sets of music around my music stand.  Not sure I’m ready to use a tablet for a concert, but it worked out well for the class.

For more information, here’s a good article from ARS: Your Personal Electronic Music Library: Storing and Playing Music on a Tablet

Susan Mason asked me to remind you that if you make a donation to OCRS before October 15, your donation will be doubled under the current matching opportunity.  If you are able to make a donation to help fund OCRS’s operating expenses for this year, please do so.  The donation form is on the page linked above.

This month I want to thank Carol Jacoby, the OCRS Publicist/Webmaster, for every thing she does.  She really helps OCRS function very well.
