A Personal History of the Record Players by Andrea Mason Nolin

Hello, I’m Andrea M. Nolin, and I would like to give you a little background on how The Record Players came into being in 2001.
Judy Record lived three doors down from me in Belmont, MA. She always greeted me with her engaging smile and would relate the latest news of the McLean Open Space Alliance, the organization that she founded to promote the protection of open space in the town. I wasn't alone in feeling enormous grief when a bicycle accident caused her untimely death in 2000. Since her Memorial Service was held at Trinity Church in Boston, I felt that Belmont needed to pay tribute to her in her home town. I gathered some musician friends, and friends of friends, as others were busy setting up a memorial fund in her name. Thus, the first concert was the founding event of the Judith K. Record Memorial Conservation Fund. On a snowy afternoon, over 200 people attended Concert I and over $10,000 was raised! With such an enthusiastic and generous response, our ensemble continues to perform every year. The Concert has now become the Fund’s Annual Appeal event.
