May Class Newsletter Vol. 1, No. 3

Attached please find an invitation to the Schubert Trio’s house concert here. Please feel free to include family, and please let me know how many so I can have a cookie count.I won’t be teaching on the following dates because of trio performances, rehearsals, or SPCO business:

Sat., Feb. 1—****For all students I recommend going to MacPhail to hear the Master
class by Robert Mann at 2 p.m. He is the former first violinist with the
Julliard String Quartet
Thur.-Sat., Feb. 27- March 1
Thur.-Mon., March 6-10

Be aware that the other two members of the trio live out of town, that plans sometimes could change, and that I may have to adjust the schedule.

Here are some dates to mark for our class rehearsals and performances:

Sat., April 12 9:00-12:30 Charles Kemper here to rehearse in private lessons.
Schedule TBA.

Thur., April 17 6:30 p.m. Peformance Class here with Charles

Here are some other events. I’m only mentioning several concerts in the area, many involving works for violin. Some are student concerts that some of you are playing. Others of these promise to be of world class quality, concerts you won’t want to miss because you’ll need to tell your grandchildren about them:
