Dear Classical Music Lover

You pulled out all the stops and made it known: CLASSICAL MUSIC IS SUPPORTED!

There is no louder or clearer message than members directly supporting this format. We are all so truly grateful for each and every one of your pledges... new members, renewing members, sustainers, additional gift donors, challengers... we couldn't have made it through this crazy fiscal year without YOU!

Congratulations to our $500 Wine Source gift card drawing winner: Richard Greene of Silver Spring! A very special THANK YOU to The Wine Source for donating that wonderful prize to help us fundraise!

Here's the Pledge Drive wrap up post for the number crunchers out there.

With deepest gratitude,

Jessica Anya Blau‘s fifth novel is a coming-of-age story set in Baltimore. The author is as much of a delight as her protagonist.

“Learning about one another and learning how to care for one another throughout life’s stages is essential to loving and satisfying relationships with our aging family members,” says author, Nancie Laird Young, whose memoir, Tea with Dad: Finding Myself in My Father’s Life, is out this month.
