There will be a memorial service for Michael Olsen on Tuesday, May 12, 6 PM, Paschal Winery, Talent, with an opportunity to relate memories and lots of music, so bring your instruments. It will be a pot luck, except for wine. The Paschal bar will be open.  Purchase of the house wine is encouraged and contribution to the tip jar encouraged even if you don’t purchase wine, as Paschal’s is providing the venue free of charge. A cheese plate is also available.

We are currently in negotiations to bring flamenco dancer Andrea la Canela to Ashland in mid- to late-August.

Please remember to pay your dues! It’s $20 for the whole year (January to December, regardless of when you pay) and helps pay for the society’s non-profit fees, venue insurance, and web fees. And it’s tax deductible.

James Edwards and David Rogers will perform a program entitled “Guitar in the Age of Beethoven” on Sunday, September 20 at 3:00 PM. This concert will be given under the auspices of the Jefferson Baroque Orchestra.
