We are happy to announce that the program originally scheduled to take
place in December (postponed due to the outbreak of the Omicron variant)
will now take place on
Sunday, April 10th, at 4pm, at Good Shepherd Center. We
appreciate your patience given the fluid nature of planning during the
pandemic, and we can’t wait to finally bring this music to you. 

As before, three outstanding musicians – baroque violinist Dongmyung Ahn
(faculty at the Aaron Copland School of Music), double bassist Max Zeugner
(Associate Principal Bass at the New York Philharmonic), and
harpsichordist Yi-heng Yang (faculty at the Juilliard School) – will
perform a beautifully varied program of early music.

We would like to express our deep gratitude to you. Thank you for all of
your ongoing support – we are grateful for your reciprocated dedication
while life and plans have been tenuous, and we are so proud to share this
community with you.

Finally, please also mark your calendars for our next orchestral concert
on June 4th at 7:30 p.m. featuring conductor Benjamin Hochman and cellist
