Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

I hope you had the good fortune to attend our December program. It was terrific - I can't imagine a better way to have said goodbye to 2014. Our audience was packed with members and guests and the performances were superb.

I know that we'll greet the new year with just as much success. There is something for everyone in this month's concert - please take a look at the impressive program. A violin and piano duo will get us started and will be followed by solo piano. The second half of our program begins with works for three flutes and finishes strongly with a few arias for voice.

Donations to our general fund and scholarship programs continue to be made but we've still got a long way to go. Though our Silver Tea fundaraiser will soon be here in April, we very much rely on donations made througout the seaseon. See our support page to find out how to make a donation.

With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
