    Dear Percy Grainger Society Members and Guests,

    As the time for our Annual Members' Meeting approaches, we’d like to thank you for your ongoing support of, and engagement with, the Percy Grainger Society. We have had great success in the last year, with numerous programs, donations, grants, and new volunteers. This is a period of growth in the society that we can all be proud of, and in which members and volunteers continue to play a vital part.

    We hope you will be able to attend this year’s Annual Members' Meeting, which we have scheduled on Percy Grainger's Birthday, Friday, July 8, at 12 noon, Eastern Daily Time, (5pm BST, 2am AEST (Saturday, July 9)). The meeting will be recorded and placed in the members' area of the website for those who cannot attend at these times.

    The meeting will cover the following key topics:

    • Review of 2021–22
    • New programs and initiatives for 2022–23
    • Board recruitment, and other opportunities for you to participate

    We expect the meeting will last between 1 to 1.5 hours. As is our practice, we are happy to answer any questions you may have during the meeting, and to allow time for open discussion. Of course, you can also email me before the meeting at paul@percygrainger.org.

    With best wishes, and we hope to see you on July 8.

    Paul Jackson
    President – Percy Grainger Society

    Lincolnshire Posy was commissioned by the American Bandmasters Association and first performed March 7, 1937, by the Milwaukee Symphonic Band. Within its compact sixteen minutes, it features six movements, each adapted from folk songs collected by Grainger during his 1905 and 1906 trip to Lincolnshire, England. Grainger intended for “each number … to be a kind of musical portrait of the singers who sang its underlying melody”, capturing both the singers’ personalities and their singing styles.

    To celebrate this milestone, the Percy Grainger Society has collaborated with the American Bandmaster's Association to focus its 2022 Members Meetings on topics concerning Lincolnshire Posy, its composition, and its original folk melodies.

    This event (three sessions) is free for members of the Percy Grainger Society and the American Bandmaster's Association.  Guest fee is $30.

    Discussion Series: Roundtable Rambles

    These Roundtables will complete the 2022 anniversary year with three one-hour roundtable discussions, each considering two movements from Lincolnshire Posy. More information here.
