Gloucester Filmmaker Dennis Lanson’s “To Hear the Music” Airs on PBS This Sunday!!!

Dear Friends and Family,

I thought you might like to know that Gloucester filmmaker Dennis Lanson’s fine documentary about the organ we (C.B. Fisk) built at Harvard University will be shown on WGBH Channel 2 at five o’clock on Sunday, January 11.

It’s called “To Hear the Music,” and it not only follows the construction and installation of our Opus 139 at Harvard’s Memorial Church, but also looks back at the 54 year history of our unique Gloucester company, and at the life of Charles Fisk, our founder and mentor.

Here’s a link to the trailer, and other info as well.

Please help us get the word out by forwarding this on to folks you know who might be interested.

Best wishes for the new year,


Gregory R Bover

Punta Arenas and Torres del Paine N.P.

We disembarked from Via Australis at Punta Arenas overlooking the Straits of Magellan, explored the town and then proceeded by bus to Puerto Natales. The next morning we began our two day exploration of Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most remote and beautiful places I can imagine.

Dinner Specials Every Week!

Wednesday, January 7th
Special Guest: F O Z Z I E !


I could not possibly think of a better way to kick in the new
year than with our very special musical guest this week…
Fozzie Hill, one of the Rhumb Line’s all-time favorites! My
suggestion would be to come early – it’s quite possible she
(upon her own request) could be starting off the night at
8pm. ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…

Dave says,

Time to make the doughnuts. So welcome back that fabulous father/son combo plate of Rick and Alec Razdan. Two of the best known local musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with. With their armada of saxophones and clarinets, lord knows what could happen. But by the process of random selection, i’m sure all your prayers will be answered. They’re dragging in their musical brethren from the A-Train Orchestra, namely Mr. Dan Whalen, on gritar,and David “Doc” Vincent, on drums to add to the confusion. We’re back to our 8:30 start, so c’mon down and have a ball!
