President´s Corner

Our annual Silver Tea meeting is days away! April's meeting is going out of its way to amaze you: you can anticipate a strong musical program and a decked-out a hall. Why? Well, it's the one meeting during the year at which we earnestly raise money for next year's Young Artist Competition (YAC). The ECB Board has set a very reasonable fundraising goal - I hope you'll help us to continue supporting music in lives of our youth. Please give what you can.

This month's musical offering includes works by the great masters: Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and Mozart. What excellent company! Expressive works for solo piano will start and end the program; in between, we'll treated to a dramatic trio by Brahms.

Please join us for this special event. The public, friends and family are always welcome. If you cannot attend the Silver Tea, you can still make your generous, tax-free donation on our Support page.


With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
