President´s Corner

We kicked off our season with a great concert last month. Our performers really impressed a grateful audience! Additionally, our newly restrung and rennovated piano was a big hit.

This month we will hear a work by Bruce Nalezny, performed by member Annie Nalezny. New member Eva Langfeldt will play with fellow member Sandy Watkins and their guest Bill Rudiak a piece by Edouard Destenay. To close the program, Marlene Rogers and her guests Carolyn Lowenthal and Liz Varnhagen will present a Gabriel Fauré piano trio.

I want to let you know that the Etude Club is happy to start accepting your donations. As in years before, the General Fund and Young Artist Conmpetition welcome your help. There is also a new Philanthropy Fund that you can donate to - it's funds are earmarked for the Community Grants.

With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
