Colorado Springs Philharmonic Guild monthly email newsletter January 2020
We have a lot on our plate right now at the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Guild. Planning for next year already, including our nominating committee, fully formed and on point to put together a strong board for next year. We are putting the final touches to this month's program--the always popular Musical Chairs program, a partnership with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic, where we have the opportunity to watch a Philharmonic rehearsal. Also underway is the planning for our upcoming Hat Shopping party on April 2 at Motif Jazz Cafe, which is just a precursor to our already successful Spring Fundraiser, the Kentucky Derby Watch Party, to be held Saturday, May 2, 3 to 6 p.m. at the Norris Penrose Event Center's VIP Room. We are excited about all that we have coming up. I would like to thank the current board for all of its hard work. A special thanks to Kim Gunderson for adding a lot of quality and interest to our monthly programs this year, resulting in increased attendance for this very special member benefit. I also want to thank Deron Hickman for his work with our valued Young Solo Artist Competition. What a great partnership we enjoy with the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony. Thank you to our growing membership and the rise in interest by our current members for the ongoing work of the Guild.
