President´s Corner

The wait is over! I am happy to announce that the Etude Club of Berkeley ia back in session. Our first meeting will be on Septemeber 26th, at 1 pm. It will be a great opportunity to catch up with friends we haven't seen all summer and to attend a music performance filled with promise.

First on our list of performances is J.S. Bach's Italian Concerto performed by our own Barbara Vail. Later, she will be joined on stage by Kendelyn Beck for a four-handed piano performance of Bach's "Two Part Inventions".

After a short break, Deborah Shuster, Janet Weinstein and new member Yulee Seo will play Mendlessohn's moving Piano Trio in d minor. It's not often that we have the opportunity to hear so much of this trio on our stage because of time constraints.

I hope you'll mark you calendar to save the date now. We're off to a great start of the 2016-2017 season. Remember, our community, friends and family are always welcome.


With warm regards,
Jason Schulterbrandt
