Message from the President:
It has been my sincere honor and privilege to serve on the board for the past 10 years, with the last two as president. This will be my last message as president and I will be ending my time on the board as of July 1st. On that day, the board will begin anew and commence with planning the 2018-2019 season. There are now step-by-step protocols for each event in place which will create a springboard for the new board to hit the ground running. So, be ready to mark your calendars by late summer for the announcements of the next season of events!
I’d like to take a moment to give thanks to the board that I have worked with this year as you’ve all done an incredible amount of work to make events seamless for the members. Each of you has brought new ideas to the table, and have been extremely generous with your time in learning new jobs, taking on new roles, and becoming more and more familiar with the details that are the San Diego Flute Guild. Cheryl, Farah, Lionel, Alina, Alan, Pam, Suzy, and Sierra: you are some of the most well organized and responsive and loving people I have been able to work with, and I appreciate each of you immensely.
Teachers: thank you for your tireless efforts and skill at producing the next generation of flutists! Students, thank you for your endless time in the practice room, and for your eager hearts pouring through your performances during recitals and competitions; your hard work does not go unnoticed! Flute enthusiasts: thank you for your continued participation, and love of the flute, and thank you for your display of camaraderie and support of one another in this community! To each of the members of the flute community, it has been a joy to watch the guild grow and flourish during these years, and I’m sure it will continue to expand in new and exciting ways in the future. Most importantly, I wish to thank all of you for helping to create something beautiful in this world, whether performing for an audience or just playing music for yourself. You are truly part of something special.
Have a wonderful summer, and thank you again for all that you do to support the guild,
