Treasurer Garald Farnham, who is moving on to focus on his career in lute and vocal performance.

The Lute Rental Program Celebrates 10 Years and is Expanding
JUNE 13, 2015
The LSA's Lute Rental Program is 10 years old this year and is being rapidly expanded in terms of the number of instruments available for rent to LSA members. Being able to rent an instrument removes the biggest barrier to beginning or continuing to play the lute: securing an instrument. The program's rental processes have been streamlined, the payment system automated, and rental requests are answered within 24 hours! For more information click on the Lute Rental button below.
The LSA Mourns the Loss of Patrick O'Brien
JANUARY 12, 2015
The loss of lute teacher, pedagogue, performer, and friend Patrick O’Brien at the age of 67 was an unexpected and shocking surprise. Pat played a central role in the fields of the lute and guitar and it would be difficult to overstate his importance to, and influence on, the Lute Society of America. Pat O’Brien was, for many of us, the soul of our organization. He is sorely missed.
