The 2015-2016 season was fantastic. We hosted amazing performances from club members, their guests and our Young Artist Competition award winners.
We have a lot for which to be thankful. Once again, we met our fundraising goals for the upcoming season's Young Artist competition. Additionally, we were able to make awards to a new generation of musicians through the YAC, the Homem Scholarship fund and our Community Grants. We can be proud that we are supporting music in our community.
While we're on summer break our piano is getting a little make-over. A new set of strings and some technical adjustments to the piano should make our Steinway sound and feel even better! I'm looking forward to its "big reveal" at our September meeting. I think everyone will be pleased.
Finally, it has been an honor to serve as the Etude Club of Berkeley's president for these past two years. I can't thank enough all those who offered their support, advice and time in making this time so wonderful for me. Thank you, thank you.
With warm regards,
