President´s Corner

A promising year of performances lies ahead that will present us with great diversity we'll hear compositions from around the globe and of every musical era; you're even likely to encounter some surprising instrument combinations.

The season kicks off with performances of the works of two contemporary composers whose writing skills are appreciated by an ever-growing fan base: Ewazen and Damase. A Beethoven trio will close our program with some classical "Oomph!"

Please join us for this great concert. Not only will it be an opportunity to hear good music, you'll also have the chance to reconnect with friends and perhaps make a new one.

With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
