Monday’s Concert & Party Schedule!

Hello, Senior Symphony!

I hope you are having a nice weekend. Just a quick hello and reminder about what we’re doing on Monday. WE HAVE A LITTLE CONCERT! AND THEN WE HAVE A PIZZA EXTRAVAGANZA.  : )

Please wear something that reflects the season….a little visual holiday cheer for our String Orchestra and Flute Chorale audience.

Also, many of us have been together for years, and in particular the entirety of 2023…rehearsals, concerts, travelling, and tour. What and amazing and unforgettable year; I am so grateful for you.

The entire orchestra, each and every one of you, is a remarkable and beautiful person. Believe it. Thank you for spending your valuable time here and for giving each other the best parts of you. Your talents, energy, spirit, good cheer, and music making. And thank you for helping each other, patiently learning how best to support and lift each other up to the next great parts of life. We are so proud of all of you!

See you Monday,
