Memorial Concert - Sun Oct 18 at 3pm

Voice of the TurtleThere is a Memorial Concert to honor the life of Judy Wachs on Sun Oct 18, 3PM at the Somerville Theatre in Davis Square - admission is free. Judy was the founder and artistic director of the Voice of the Turtle, a Sephardic music group. She died in October 2008. The remaining members as well as Libana will perform. I'm going - it'll be fun.

I knew all four of the turtles when we were all members of the Quadrivium - an early music performing group from the 70s and 80's. Also I was on their board of directors for a couple of years. They used to give an annual concert in December around Hannukah and also some others and made a number of CD's - I think I have them all.

that's Judy on the left.
