CJ Wilson organized an energetic group of committee members this week to kick off the Philharmonic Friends season by writing to members and prospective donors to the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The new Disney Hall concert season began in October and coincides with the Philharmonic Friends year, October through September of next year. Friends packages will be mailed in the near future and may be returned between now and September, 2014 for PCLAP to receive credit for this year’s contributions. Thanks to Marge Schmit for hosting the work session and to CJ and Sheri Gill for providing lunch. Please donate generously.

Music Appreciation — Bach to Broadway and the Silver Screen

Five PCLAP members – Jane Beseda, Marian Duntley, Ann Ehrenclou, Sheri Gill and Karen Tozer  — attended a Music Appreciation course on Saturday.  Sponsored by the Affiliates At Large, Sheldon Cohen explored the influences of Classical music in the theater in the Bach to Broadway session.  Musical highlights from the scores of Kismet, Mame, Oklahoma, Porgy and Bess, Westside Story and many others demonstrated how Classical music creates moods, settings and story lines.  Next Saturday’s course will discuss the influences on the Silver Screen.  It will be held October 19 at the Volunteer Cottage from 10:30 to noon.  The cost is $30 per person and includes study materials, refreshments and parking.  Space is still available; contact Nancy Howard at (818) 761-0500 or by e-mail at nd_howard@yahoo.com.

Welcome to the new PCLAP website!

This website is still under construction, but we hope you enjoy previewing what it will look like as we develop it further.  Moving to the WordPress platform enabled us to obtain a more appropriate domain name for it, and to bring the administration of it in-house.  We will also be able to keep the content fresh, and notify you when there is a new post.

We hope you like the look of the page with its “Piano Black” theme.  In addition to the home page where you will find recent posts, you can also navigate to additional pages by clicking on links at the upper right entitled “About Us/Contact,” “Board” and “Calendar.”

Stand by for more information on our website in the coming weeks.
