President´s Corner

February is here with Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day, and, yes, an Etude Club program! We will get together on Monday, February 24 at 1 p.m. We will again be treated to a variety of musical styles and instrumentations.

Hospitality — Suzie Lundeen, filling in for chair Bi Le, reports that the team will include Geoff Chandler, Mary Farrell, Rosemarie Klems, Anita Lee, Janet Maestre, Dorothy Manly, Eliza O'Malley, and Suzanne Siebert.

In January, we received a very generous donation to the Young Artist Competition Fund from Suzie Lundeen.

Speaking of the Young Artist Competition — the application deadline is approximately a month away with the auditions taking place a month after that. We are hoping for another crop of exciting young musicians who will inspire all of us through their music-making.

Best regards,
Sue Waller
