Fall Meeting at Hunter College--Music and Politics

The Fall Meeting for 2015 will take place on Saturday, October 24th at Hunter College, 695 Park Avenue, NYC 10065.  Go to room 404.  The topic for this meeting is "Music and Politics."  We will be serving a light lunch, compliments of David Hurwitz.

Hunter College is located at 68th Street and Lexington Avenue. Here is a link to directions:

Because of Hunter's new security system, guests are required to enter through the West Building, on the southwest corner of 68th and Lexington. From there, you should take the escalator to the third floor, walk across 68th Street on the enclosed bridge, and turn left into the North Building. You can reach the fourth floor by stairs or elevator. Room 404 is on the west side of the building.
