Looking Back

Our December 14 concert, “Holiday Panorama” was a sell-out and everyone appeared to thoroughly enjoy the eclectic music in the program.Top billing went two guest artists: soprano Milena Georgieva who sang Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate and soloist Greg Chambers who performed John Williams’ Escapades for Saxophone & Orchestra from the movie “Catch Me If You Can”. Both soloists were breathtaking and much appreciated by the audience. Those present also appreciated a special commemorative piece composed and conducted by Christopher Niemann that paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the terrorist killings in Paris and San Bernardino. Special recognition was given to RNP Advisory Services of Morgan Hill for sponsoring the concert. Their financial support is much appreciated.
