Our next program will be Monday, December 20 at 1:00 p.m. at the Hillside Club.following the same protocols as our previous programs (see below). Those who have already showed their vaccination cards will speed through the line no need to show the card again. Please remember to wear a mask while indoors at the Hillside Club. By the way, the chairs are spaced six feet apart for social distancing and good sight lines. And please communicate these 'rules' to your guests. And remember that guests are always welcome and encouraged.

The December program will provide a wide cross section of our membership: flute trios by some lesser known composers (Damase, Tcherepnin, Narboni, and Kummer), performed by Sue Waller, Katy Wilson, and Janet Woodhams; several Dvorak selections for solo piano performed by Jacqueline Divenyi; and vocal selections by Bach, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, and Verdi sung by soprano Eliza O'Malley, collaborating with guests mezzo soprano Ellen St. Thomas and pianist Jonathan Khuner.

Special thanks to Julia Wenk for her generous donation to the Young Artist Competition Fund, and to Bruce De Benedictis, who generously ensures our piano is tuned and in terrific condition for each and every performance.

Best regards,
Sue Waller
