42, and thanks for all the fish!

Everyone knows, the more players you have, the more you can spread the load and get it done faster.

Purple because aliens don’t wear hats. Oh wait - that was for the LSAT.

Wow! A million thanks and congratulations, dear Susan!

Congratulations Susan!

Thank you, Susan! Always enjoy and learn so much from your program notes!🌺

🍂 🎻 What an exciting September in Anchorage!

We would like to thank everyone who attended the many concerts and community events offered during Sitka Music Festival's Autumn Classics. The outlook for chamber music in Alaska continues to look brighter and brighter.

All six of the Autumn Classics performances were well attended this year and two were over-sold with additional seating added to meet the demand. The Beethoven Cello Sonatas were so popular, seating was added and 30 audience members were able to experience the performance from on stage (pictured above)!

We are extremely grateful for the ongoing support of the UAA Music Department and being able to perform in their gorgeous recital hall.

We'd also like to thank Alaska Airlines, the Atwood Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Alaska State Council on the Arts, ConocoPhillips, and the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center for their tremendous support in making our Autumn Classics performances possible. We couldn't have taken such good care of our artists without the hospitality of several Anchorage businesses, namely ORSO, SOUTH, Spenard Roadhouse, CRUSH Wine Bistro & Cellar Aspen Suites, and The Hotel Captain Cook.

In addition to our six main concerts, we also presented special public performances at Nesbett Courthouse the ConocoPhillips Atrium and the Anchorage Museum. Our Saturday morning "Informances" also keep growing: there were over 80 in attendance last Saturday.

In the middle of this flurry of September performances, Zuill Bailey Bailey also led a master class with UAA: University of Alaska Anchorage cello students and musicians gave special performances at West High School and the Hiland Mountain Correctional Facility. Earlier this month, in Sitka, Alfredo Oyágüez gave presentations to the 4th graders at Keet Gooshi Heen, the Sitka High School Wind Ensemble, and the Mt. Edgecumbe High School rock band, as well as the piano dedication at St Peter's By-the-Sea Episcopal Church! Zuill and Alfredo also stopped in Cordova to perform for the community, plus special visits to local schools and the hospital.
