We enjoyed a terrific time with Gerdan at our fundraiser yesterday. Andrei, Solomia, and Kilim not only entertained us with lively, traditional, and toe tapping music, we learned about the various flutes created by different people from Eastern Europe and even a few secrets about how they are made.
Our Fundraiser & Reception is just around the corner. You don't want to miss this musical event and silent auction. For a small donation of $35.00 you'll hear the Gerdan trio, have the opportunity to bid on and own unique artworks, and enjoy complimentary refreshments.

Mitsumoto has conducted the ICW chamber players in a series of concerts that featured some exciting talent. The 2016 Fall concert: Baroque or Contemporary? featured Hyunah You, an extraordinary soprano who has performed in the US and around the world. In 2015, the orchestra performed with Marianna Bednarska, a rising star in the percussion world. Her electrifying performance on Marimba and Xylophone brought the audience to its feet. Listen to her encore performance here.
Join us on November 12th at 3:15 pm to hear lively and exciting music by a wonderful trio, Gerdan. In addition, you can bid on and then take home wonderful art work, a handmade Japanese doll, a basket of delicious food and other items, at our silent auction. We hope to see you at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center!
