The last Monday of the year. Despite all the hardships and difficulties, 2021 has also given us many opportunities to reassess what we may want in our lives, and to delight in those unexpected moments of deep joy.
Looking ahead for Dranoff2, we are deeply excited to work with our new board member, Juan Carlos Espinoza, Dean of FIU’s Honors College, and a music lover for whom this art is as essential as oxygen. I have chosen one of his favorites, a particularly touching rendition of the beloved Ave Maria, paired with a composition by Jeroen van Veen that also celebrates the human voice. Welcome, Juan Carlos!
I hope you will join us at the January 6 concert and meet him and our other board members. It will be like a re-union, and I cannot wait to see you!
Enjoy this last week of the year, a liminal time full of possibilities.
