Immanuel Lutheran Church

With David Spector and Sam Peabody

Transliterations, mnemonics, transcriptions—whatever you call them, this program might help you “cheer up cheerily,” as David, a “teacher, teacher, teacher,” tells the club that we can always look forward with the chickadees to “spring soon, spring’s coming.”  Did Sam Peabody ever meet Miss Beecher?  Will the club refreshment table have “potato chips” or a “tea kettle, tea kettle, tea kettle”?  David probably won’t answer these questions, but he will discuss the history and context of some of the transliterations that many of us use to remember bird songs.  David has been a member of the club since its first meeting and has given approximately umpteen club programs; the identity of his co-presenter is a bit obscure.
