President´s Corner

Hello and welcome back. We're off to a great start in 2016: the Club celebrated its 112th birthday and last month's concert was fantastic. I think the lovely music inspired an already beautiful afternoon.

This month, we will be treated to works by chums Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms, as well as Gustav Holst, Alex van Gils and Béla Bartók.

Our performers' offerings should make very good listening: in addition to being of great merit, they will give the listener the opportunity to try to discern the differences and/or similarities of 19th, 20th and 21st century music.

With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
