President´s Corner

Greetings Etude members! This month brings another exciting program. Special thanks to member Jacqueline Divenyi and her guest artitst, Jan Volkert, for stepping in to fill a cancellation. Jan is a past judge for our Young Artist Competition, so it is especially fitting to welcome her as a performer. Flute music will round out the program including rarely heard duos presented by Brenda Sakovsky and Larry Duckles.

Special thanks to the February Hospitality Committee, led by Suzie Lundeen: Suzanne Siebert, Bi Le, Serena Le and Janet Woodhams, with greeters, Carline Kim and Grace Rutledge. Our club is fortunate to have so many dynamic and willing volunteers!

Welcome to Grace Rutledge, who has officially joined the ranks of our members, having been a frequent and enthusiastic guest. Feel free to bring a friend or prospective member to this or any of our upcoming programs it is always a pleasure to have guests in our audience and to introduce them to our club.

The deadline to apply for the Homem community grants open to music education programs that create opportunities for underserved young people is March 30. You are encouraged to ask representatives of deserving programs to apply. The application is on our web site. In sad news, Janet Maestre's husband of many years passed away.
