Happy New Year! This month we celebrate Etude Club's 114th birthday including a special birthday cake during our refreshment time.

Welcome to new members: Dave Lyons, Ellen Hershey, Brett Waxdeck, Serena Le, Bi Le and Anita Lee! Dave (horn) and Ellen (flute) both performed as guests in the Poulenc sextet in October. Brett (piano) is an active performer with a rich musical c.v. Serena (violin) is a graduate student at UC Berkeley and her mother, Bi, is a lifelong music lover. We are also happy to welcome Anita Lee, who joined earlier this year. We look forward to seeing and getting to know you all in the new year!!

Jane O'Donnell's family invites Etude friends to attend the Celebration of Life for Jane on Sunday, January 28th from 1 pm to 4 PM at the Piedmont Community Hall.

Special recognition to Larry Duckles, our stage manager and 2nd VP for the ongoing stage managing and behind the scenes work he is doing this month and throughout the year. Thank you, too, to the January hospitality volunteers -- Jason Chiu, Sandy Watkins, and Janet Weinstein led by our wonderful hospitality chair, Suzie Lundeen.

Once again, we have a terrific musical program lined up. I hope to see you there!
