Greetings MCMS Supporters:
What an exciting start to our 2014-2015 concert season starting with popular baritone Stephen Saxon in September, then Philip Borter and his wife Hirono in October. This was probably our most popular and well attended concert to date. Naturally we are thrilled with this level of support and enthusiasm.
As we prepare for the holiday season, I want to thank all who are reading this newsletter for your support and generosity in donations throughout the year. We cannot do these special concerts without you.
After the winter holidays, we have three Florida prodigies: young cellist Julia Lee who will be joined by brothers Jonathan and Matthew Reichenburger, pianist and violinist on February 8. All three have been prize winners all over Florida. The Best of Ocala Piano Conservatory returns on March 15th for our fund raising concert. And our final concert on April 19 will be our most ambitious concert to date featuring internationally acclaimed concert pianist Susan Starr. Program Sponsors for this event (donations of $500 or more – donations tax deductable) will receive benefits to include: preferred seating at the concert, listing in the program as “Program Sponsors,” a CD of Ms Starr performing either piano solos or chamber works, and an invitation to a private party for Ms Starr. Call 867-1340 for more information.
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”
Again, thank you so much for your continued support of the Marion Chamber Music Society. Have a safe and happy holiday however you choose to celebrate it. See you February 8th.
Richard Hammes, President
