Abby Mason hosted the December Intermezzo recital, as she has for many years. The program included some wonderful holiday melodies, as well as the usual eclectic mix of piano pieces and instrumental selections. Chopin was featured prominently, with a Mazurka, a Waltz, and a Prelude. If you are interested in participating in future recitals, contact Joan Magagna at jmagagna@amsfperform.org.
