We came back to St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in Washington, DC, for our second Encore recital of this season. I sent out a pre-recital reminder email to the membership like we used to do pre-pandemic, and the memory-jogger brought out a nice larger gathering to hear the beautiful music our eight performers played for them. We had a nice reception with refreshments after the recital in the space adjacent to the sanctuary.

Our next Encore recital will be held on April 21st. If you wish to perform or attend as audience, contact Mark Ross at mross@amsfperform.org. We will be trying out another new venue for this one, so if you get a chance, come on out and help give it a “test drive!”
