Season Opener

Friends,

I hope you are all having a terrific rest of your summer after making such wonderful music in June and July. I look forward to opening the new season with you at our first rehearsal in just a few short weeks. The theme for the Season Opener is SONGS FOR THE FREE. Reflections on how good our country truly is, warts and all. If you have time, please take a listen to the literature for the concert:
