Members of the Musicians of Ma’alwyck performed a wonderful selection of 18th-century French music at our Celebrate Mom! event on May 11, 2019. Pictured are Tess McCarthy, mezzo soprano, Todd Sisley, harpsichord, Ann-Marie Barker Schwartz, violin, and Norman Thibodeau, flute. Over 100 people attended the event and enjoyed the coffee, tea, and treats that Hyde Hall provided.

These images follow the progress of design and installation of a prototype leader head at Hyde Hall. In spite of the weather a trial installation was made on November 29, 2018. After evaluation, 5 further units will be installed on the east side of Hyde Hall to funnel water into the downspouts.
