Note from the Conductor

Ladies and Gentlemen of the ESCO:

Thank you for your wonderful music making last night and through the course of our season.  I have enjoyed your commitment to preparing your music and your work has clearly displayed itself in our concerts.

In addition to your playing, I have also appreciated your help setting up for the orchestra.  The library staff, especially Linda, is a huge help.  And, of course, the work done by our new Board of Directors is helping solidify the orchestra's success in the future.  Most outstanding is our new website.  It will be a big help improving communication in years to come.

And thank you for the generous gift.  My wife and I both enjoy going to the 5th Street Market and with your kindness we will have many pleasant meals thanks to you.

You all know my email (  Please send me repertory suggestions and any other relevant requests.

Again, thanks for a great year.  Enjoy your summer and I'll see you in the fall.

Take care.



Note from the Treasurer

Dear ESCO friends,

At our concert on Sunday, we received $350 from donations at the door. Three cheers to your friends and family members who offered their generous support! Thanks also to all who joined us at the pizza parlor fundraiser. That netted us $450. So we are comfortably fixed for the early-fall expenses. Have a great summer!
