In Memoriam

Dear PUG Members,

Please see the announcement below regarding beloved former member, Larry Lewis.  We appreciate his contributions to the fun and learning in our group.

These are the song sheets used during Stu Fuch’s workshop (plus some bonus material!)

Call for Musicians

Seeking Musicians – Debra plans the activities for Granite Gate Senior Living’s “Bridge to Rediscovery” dementia residents. She is seeking musicians for 1 hour time slots on afternoons between 1-3:30. She is particularly interested in booking Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. They have a piano on site, otherwise bring own instruments.

  • Pay is $40 for the hour.
  • Classics/hits of 30s-50’s, country, jazz, and movie tunes.
  • This can be a onetime, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly gig.

We had fun – even though the audience was sparse.  Too hot out there…. (next year? Hmmmmm.)

Donate your unused instruments!

Housed in Prescott College, comMUSIKey is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building community through people playing music together. ComMUSIKey is predicated on the belief that all human beings are innately and uniquely musical. Music heals people and communities. Music bonds people together. Here are some of the ways we perform this magic.

  • We provide workshops in schools, churches, farmers markets, in our own studio and wherever people gather to foster the interconnectedness that music provides.
  • We direct performance groups that include theater, music, and movement that are open to everyone with no auditions.
  • We offer music as a healing modality for the body, mind, and spirit.
  • We offer a physical space to create, perform, teach and record music.
  • We tune pianos and appraise, free-of-charge, any piano considered for purchase. We believe that a tuned piano is a played piano.
  • We teach music through private and group lessons.
  • We make musical instruments available to all who want to discover their own personal music.

If you have an old ukulele, percussion instrument or anything else you’d like to donate, please contact Jonathan Best at  jb@comMUSIKey.org

News from August meeting!

Your steering committee has decided to add a second (optional – if groups volunteer) Spotlight Performance at monthly meetings that will happen after the break.  Spotlight performances are requested to be under 6 minutes long.  Groups, please contact Dougal with a request (if you don’t have his email send one here & it will be forwarded).

PUG has been offered a performance slot at the Yavapai Co. Fair which takes place at the Fair Street grounds in Prescott.  Our performance is scheduled for Saturday 9/9, at 11 am.  We’ll perform core songs together as a group and sub groups will be scheduled, too. More Info Here

Speaking of Core Songs, please check the Songbook Page on this site if you are missing printouts.  We’ll be updating the Core Songs List and Notes soon.

Next month we’ll have Kanikapila as the spotlight #1 performer, and we’ll be practicing core songs for the Fair performance.

Aloha ~

PS – Y’all looked lovely in the group shot which will be posted soon!

Your Photographer hard at work!
