With optimism in the air, we are happy to be closing out the current season and getting ready for the next! We had a very busy winter producing our Mexican Christmas video debut, 30-some newly-created videos from our audio archives, and our Behind the Scenes Lecture series. Stay tuned; if you missed our lecture series, we will be posting the recorded sessions on YouTube in the following weeks, and you can catch up or watch them again at your leisure!
And now – drum roll, please – for next season, we bring you three of the concerts we had planned for last year, all postponed because of the pandemic. We’ll open the season Oct. 29 with a Welcome Back gala fundraiser at the Halim Museum in Evanston. This beautiful, spacious and airy venue will host us once again to meet and greet, hear some great music, and enjoy refreshments together. Mexican Christmas is back, this time with supertitles! Then, in the Winter/Spring 2022 we will present “Music Fit for the Medici” and “Fun and Games”. Dates and venues will be announced shortly, so make sure you’re on our mailing list!
We wish everyone good health and we look forward to seeing you in person soon!
