President´s Corner

November, so soon? The holiday season lies ahead, so as we turn our minds toward cornucopias, turkeys and pies, let us not forget to feed our ears and souls with good music.

If our October program had a motif, it would have been the piano. In contrast, this month's program might be titled, "Flutes and Friends". A piano solo piece warms our palettes to the flute feast to follow: flute & piano, flute, clarinet & piano, and finally four flutes!

Our composers come from very different eras, walks of life and continents. This seems appropriate – what program could better help to remind us to be thankful for living in a diverse and interconnected world?

With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
