The members of the Board and I hope you are all managing to find ways to enjoy music and keep healthy during these difficult times. We all know the many restrictions on our movements and meetings etc. have been put in place for our safety, but as the days go by, they can seem to be Oh so onerous. Don’t give up now, we will beat this thing.
Unfortunately, we were unable to bring you either in-person or virtual concerts this season, therefore, as I said in my letter at the beginning of the season, we will be sending the donations we received from you to Doug Myers, the Director of The New Baroque Soloists, for him to disburse to the talented and professional musicians that have played such wonderful music for us. So, a very big thank you to all who donated, making this gift possible.
As a little reminder of these beautiful concerts, here are two recordings by the soloists done in previous years at the Washington Meeting House, and on Youtube, for you to sit back and enjoy:
The first part of the Suite from the Royal Fireworks Music, HWV 351 by G. F. Handel. New Baroque Soloists
Concerto for Violoncello in C minor W.C. 77 by Johann Christian Bach (1735-1782), featuring superb cellist Samuel Magill.
When you press click it will take you to YouTube. Type "The New Baroqe Soloists" in the search bar.
We are all hoping that there will be a vaccine and the concerts can take place next year. In the meantime stay well and healthy.
