Annual Meeting 2014 packet

Our annual meeting is this coming Sunday the 26th. Please click above to read the packet of information. The meeting itself will move quickly, so it’s important to read in advance. All are invited and please consider bringing a dish to share at our pot-luck coffee hour!

Formed in 2004 by four musicians who also play in the San Francisco Opera and San Francisco Ballet Orchestras, the quartet answers a need for a depth of creative expression rarely available in the orchestral setting. The quartet has chosen the name “Temescal” (a ritual bath house or sweat lodge) to reflect the physical and spiritual renewal its members feel each time they play together. Each performance by the Temescal Quartet reflects a shared love of chamber music so profound that playing together has become a necessity.

I ask you to please take a look at the list of cards we have on-hand and see if any of them are for places where you shop on a regular or even occasional basis. Any card we are unable to sell cuts into our small profit margin. You can email Karen (karenkoenig@comcast.net) if there are any you are able to purchase and/or bring your… Continue reading
