Immediately following Open Stage Recital (advertised by Axtremus) in Westford MA, Larry Buck, a recent member and an outstanding piano tech, has volunteered to host a PW gathering in Lowell. Larry welcomes us to gather in the music room of his shop where a Petrof model II will be available to those interested in providing entertainment.


Please post a response if you plan to attend.

YUM. Sorry for hogging the thread and being OOT. But i have to agree with you. I am the chef for my clam chowder. I buy mine canned and another can of clam (so that you really get the LOTS OF CLAMS) add the broth to the soup, add extra milk, butter cook it up abit more and top it with parsley flakes. Stir in the clams last.
Serve with toasted baguette.

No one has explained what a piano tech does to me yet.... *off to google*

justme & kenny.... I wish a few more of the NE members would be as anxious to join us!! \:\(

Maybe the month of April is too far beyond the imagination of most NE'ers.


Keith... When Larry told me about the Petrof II he did refer to it as "his".


I wonder if Larry has any pic's of the Petrof II (??)

Piano tech is a short way of saying piano technician - the people that tune, service, and repair pianos. Hopefully, the piano tech does all this to your piano and not to you. Ah, the vagaries of syntax in the English language.

No my dad taught Engineering. He can help with digital signal processing but I suppose he won't be able to help anything music-related =) American schools are also an option. My cousin who was raised in Singapore got accepted to a university in America on scholarship. That's pretty common, I used to know a bunch of Singapore natives when I lived in dorms.
