Other Minds Does Henry Cowell

The indispensable Other Minds is putting on a mini-festival next week devoted to the visionary American composer Henry Cowell. A pair of concerts, a panel discussion, and a couple of receptions await anyone lucky enough to be free. The performers include Sarah Cahill, Wendy Hillhouse, the Colorado String Quartet, organist Sandra Soderlund, and the Abel-Steinberg-Winant Trio. What a lineup! I probably cannot go; I have multiple conflicts that include a two-day work event of which I am an organizer. But maybe you can go!

Thanks for the reminder of our Cowell concerts, Lisa. Just one question: Is that an antique spelling of "hath TOLD twelve?" Seems like it should be "tolled." Best wishes for success with your projects. Sorry we'll miss you.

Charles, you're very welcome. I am so sorry I can't come.

"Told" is the spelling in the play, and my best guess is that it's a pun. Told/tolled; the audience can't tell what the spelling is.
