Berg Concert Huge Success!
275 attendees enjoyed the recent Shelly Berg Trio concert at Holley Hall. Shelly was simply stunning! At times he was highly animated and energetic; and then at other moments intimate and moving. Always inspired, his performance gave the audience a highly personal and emotional connection to the music.

Many thanks to Michael Lazaroff of The Jazz Cruse for sponsoring Shelly's appearance; and for attending the event together with his wife Paula.

Great praise must be given to our Volunteer Coordinator and Board member Lenore Walsh and her crew of 14 volunteers. They made the management of the evening work!

The Music Committee is already planning more major events like this for next season. We will be looking for sponsors.
