President´s Corner

I can't imagine a better way to have celebrated our 111th birthday than with January's concert. Truly dazzling performances, from the first note to the last. Thank you musicians! Also, I would like to extend a special thank you to Debbie Carton, who led our club on a tour of the Berkeley Public Library's Music and Art department.

As you can see from the program at the right, we can look forward to another concert packed with good music. A Mozart piano sonata will start things off and will be followed by a J.S. Bach sonata for unaccompanied violin. The second half of our concert begins with works by Russian composers Lyadov and Lyapunov for solo piano. Lest we forget the importance of teamwork, we'll finish our program with a piece by a Czech composer, Moscheles, for flute and piano.

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 throughout the season. See our support page to find out how.

With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
