May Class Newsletter, Vol. 11, No. 5

Hi, Students and Parents,

Terrific class on Saturday! More on that in my next post. A couple of parents alerted me to upcoming concerts:

I told you about the first one in a post fairly recently. To refresh your memory, I’ve copied it below in part:

[….]concert which will feature two violinist brothers from India. They play in an entirely different way from violinists in our world of western art music. I think it would be terrific for the students to hear this great playing in another fascinating tradition.

The concert will be on Oct. 28, 2012 at HHH Cowles Auditorium. For more info, go to                                                                            Advance booking is open now, if you plan to attend the event.
