Morris County NJ

March 6, 2023, 2:47 PM · I'm curious to learn if there are any Violinist.Com members who live in or near Morris County, NJ that might be interested in forming a very low key group to play music just for fun.

Further if you are retired would you like something like this in the daylight hours?

My father joint this organization around 1948, shortly after it was founded*, and shortly after we had moved from New York City to the Maryland countryside. (** at that time the "A" represented a different word - I thought it was "American")

I joined it in the 1960s (or so) after moving to an isolated.California Desert community. I ceased to belong after my telephone prefix "stretched" to include over 200 miles of inland California counties and all the calls about "getting together for some chamber music" came from the other end of that stretched. And anyway, I already had plenty of local music "playmates" by then.

I rejoined for a short time here (in the San Francisco suburbs) about 12 years ago when my (temporary) string quartet wanted to hire a professional coach for a concert we were preparing and when all 4 of us joined we qualified for 4 coached sessions for a fee of $50 each.

Spent most of my life in Morris Plains.
Retired to Naples, Florida.

I'm SURE there are string players you can hook up with.
Try the Morristown Arts association,. They might be able to point you in the right direction.

I signed up with them some time ago and it took almost forever to get removed from their email listing (or did I block them?)

Before my Bell Labs days with 80% travel I did use ACMP for some nice chamber music meetings.
