Greetings MCMS Supporters:
I must start this newsletter with a very big “Thank You” to all of you who have sent in donations since my last newsletter. We couldn’t put on our concerts and get the word out about them without your support.
It is only a couple weeks until our first concert of the season. On Sunday October 25th we will host The University of Florida Faculty Piano Trio featuring Dr. Hee Jung Kang, piano; Dr. Janna Lower, violin & Dr. Steven Thomas, cello. This distinguished trio will be performing music by Mozart and Tchaikovsky for us. Their impressive musical bios “blew me away.” Collectively they have performed all over the world. I am really looking forward to their collaboration.
After the winter holidays on Sunday January 24, 2016, we have a special treat for you: The Licorice Sticks from Orlando, an all clarinet orchestra using 15 types of standard and non-standard clarinet instruments. I will have more details about their concert in my next newsletter.
On Sunday February 21, 2016, popular soprano Karen Adair will sing for us.
On Sunday April 17, 2016, brought back by popular demand will be “The Best of the Ocala Piano Conservatory - and Friends. More on these special and talented “friends” later.
As always, all our concerts are at Queen of Peace Catholic Church, 6455 SW Highway 200 in Ocala. They start at 3 p.m. and admission is free. We encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors to join us for a relaxing afternoon of beautiful music. Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss any of these great MCMS concerts! Remember, we are “Always exceptional, Always FREE”
Thank you so much for your continued support of the Marion Chamber Music Society. Donations are the sole funding source for the MCMS. We couldn’t exist without your generosity!
See you October 25th. Richard Hammes, President
