President´s Corner

Greetings Etude Members! This month is the Silver Tea, which features a wonderful musical program (see right) and a special tea time devoted to raising the funds for next year's Young Artist Competition (YAC).

Among the delights at the Silver Tea, we will enjoy a special confection a cake created by Jason Schulterbrandt that you will not want to miss! The event also features some table seating in the floor setup, which is fun. The fund raising aspects of the event include a silver bowl for you to deposit your checks and cash contributions (bring your checkbooks!) and a "Spare Silver" jar, to see how much loose change we can collect. We look forward to seeing you at this worthy and festive event! Please come, enjoy, and support the next generation of musicians.

Special thanks this month to Joan Reid, who has organized the silver tea, and to the hospitality committee, led by Suzie Lundeen with assistance from William Beatty, Bebe Yee, and Pat Atwood and greeters Janet Weinstein and Anita Lee.

A big thank you to Nan Stigter for her generous donation last month to the young artist fund.

Hope to see you soon,
Katy Wilson
