Special Invitation for May 13

Greetings, everyone!

I'm still going to send out the best photos from the April 16 concert. They happen to be on my camera, so I really will do it. I promise!

In the meantime, this is a great chance to support a fantastic violinist! I hope you remember Moriah Wilhelm, the violinist who came to our retreat with the flutist, Christina Taylor. Moriah has sent an invitation to a special recital. Hearing her play is always a special treat, and I have put it on my calendar to be sure to attend!

Here is her letter:


Hi Julie,

I have been accepted to study and perform at The Green Lake Summer Music Festival (www.greenlakefestival.org) this summer.  Based at Wisconsin's Ripon College, the festival offers instruction from performing artists including the Amelia Piano Trio and the violin virtuoso Samantha George.  The camp also includes performance opportunities with some of the most talented young musicians in the nation.  This two-week festival, July 1st through the 15th, hosts gifted high school and college age violinists, violists, cellists, and pianists in a dynamic, rigorous solo and chamber music experience. 

This music camp, as others, requires an investment in tuition, airfare, and other supplies.  I have received a partial tuition scholarship to attend, and I am exploring additional opportunities to make this dream a reality.  I will be performing on May 13, 2011 in a Benefit Recital to help raise the remaining funds by inviting donations.  I would love to have you come and enjoy this exciting event featuring music of Camille Saint-Saens, Maurice Ravel, Dmitri Shostakovitch, and Claude Debussy in a combination of both solo and chamber music.  The date and time information is below.

The Green Lake Music Festival Benefit Recital

You are cordially invited to attend my program.  Thank you so much for all your support in helping me to accomplish my dream, experience music in the fullest, and bring its magic to the hearts and minds of others.  Hope to see you there!
