New Season promises great programs
A big thank you from the Program Committee for your support of our 2018-2019 program season. As many of your already know, the Guild is required in our bylaws to have a certain number of member meetings each year. We strive to keep the meeting portion of those programs concise and to emphasize the actual program in an effort to make our presentations more appealing to a broader audience.
The 2019-2020 season is shaping up to be another banner year for programming! Keep watching for more specific details as the planning continues to unfold. The September program will be hosted by our President, Hope Mena, at her and her husband Joe's lovely home on Wednesday, September 18 at 5:30 p.m. As always, we are so appreciative of her generosity and ongoing support of the Guild programs. RSVP here for the September program. We continue to offer daytime and evening programs in an effort to accommodate the scheduling needs of the most members.
Join us Wednesday, October 16, 6 to 8 p.m. This is a special performance by Alex Da Costa, Philharmonic visiting guest artist. Da Costa will perform at Harvey House at Catalyst Campus.
November's program: TBA
We will have a holiday party on Tuesday, December 17, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Guild members will convene at The Deco Lounge at the Fine Arts Center. We will enjoy an evening of traditional Christmas music.
Maestro's Circle Goes Columbian
Thanks to the Philharmonic staff and Maestro Josep Caballe-Domenech, 50 Maestro's Circle members, including 20 Guild members traveled to Columbia for the Bogota International Music Festival centered on the music of Brahms, Schubert and Schuman. The group was awed by a whirlwind of seven exhilarating concerts in five days performed mainly by the Dresden Festival Orchestra. While the concerts were the focal point of the trip, the excitement did not end with the music. Countless excursions to beautiful and historic sites, mountain hikes, a two-day jaunt to the coffee region and a layover in the beach front city of Cartegena rounded out the tour which left everyone exhausted but thrilled with the opportunity to experience the beautiful country and culture of Columbia. This trip was the fourth international trip planned by the Philharmonic for Maestro's Circle members. For details on the Maestro's Circle and to be included in future international and local trips, contact Catherine Creppon at the Philharmonic office at 719-344-2455. Enjoy the short slide show below.
Peachy Party a sweet success
