Message to Membership – October 13, 2022
A huge thank you to all who attended our opening two conclaves. Not only was it wonderful to see old and new faces, but I heard so many positive comments about our 50th recording, and the music for our upcoming season! As always, kudos to Dawn Bauer and the Social Committee for providing the delicious spread!
Now – on to Monday, when we will begin our journey through the music of Handel’s Messiah, as we prepare for our first performances of this beloved work in 4 years!
See you soon,
