Just spitballing here, but my guess is that what Celestemcc and lagartija are implying is that CG music in Massachusetts is really, really awesome right now.

BTW, what Lagartija said, re Amherst. (wish I could make that one). Last Saturday was the Boston-area premiere of Frank Wallace's chamber suite "As It Could Be," originally written for and performed at the Hartt School of Music last year for Richard Provost's 50th anniversary there. Great stuff, exciting music.

Massachusetts is not part of New York, it is another state...well actually it is a "Commonwealth", but that is another story. It is separated from New York City by the State of Connecticut. :-)
Boston is the capital of Massachusetts. Perhaps you know where Boston is? I'm a two hour drive West of Boston. Three hour drive North from New York City.

Yes, of course, Malc. ;-)
Not everyone knows where every state is located in the US....not even US citizens. :shock:

the joke about the tiny pianist struck home, and now your faculty member if overcompensating by striking out against us highly erotic guitarists.

If you are going to say in answer to what do you play, then why not 'Torres Guitar'. After all, most of our instruments are after his. Another thing I thought was 'Rosette Guitar', as most makers use this means of identification(along with the headstock).

I always wondered why so many pianists drove expensive sports cars.
