We are so fortunate that Rep. Katrina Shankland GETS IT when it comes to the value of the arts in our community! In fact, she gets it so much that she led the CWSO in a classic movie tune...think... "You're gonna need a bigger boat..." (2017 winner of the So You Think You Can Conduct contest)

Happy birthday J.S. Bach! While there is some disagreement whether Bach's birthday was March 21 or March 31, depending on using the 'old style' Julian calendar or the 'new style' Gregorian calendar, his birthday seems to naturally coincide with the vernal equinox: http://www.biography.com/people/johann-sebastian-bach-9194289

As we look to April (and all things Spring), we are excited about the final concert of the 2016-17 season with Dr. Stijn DeCock's artistry. Here's a glimpse into Dr. DeCock's well-earned reputation, "hailed for his passionate and virtuosic piano playing." (East Hampton Star) https://youtu.be/cz9RgfCduP0 Tickets: cwso.org
