Hi Music Lovers,
After our great success at our sold out last concert we are offering our next concert on Sunday September 1st. This is now our Labor Day Weekend Concert. It is hard to top our last program but we are going to try. You will have a chance to hear the great String Quartet by Bedřich Smetana. This is an amazing and dramatic composition that opens with solo viola played by our fabulous Dale Hikawa Silverman (Associate Principal of the LA Phil). Of course the other players are our same Strumenti Chamber Players with me, Guido Lamell and Tao Ni on cello. (both from the La Phil) We will open with another Quartet by Mendelssohn, Op 44 #2 in e minor, for a lot of excitement. Many have requested the beautiful Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber, so we will throw that in also.
We have raised the price a bit so that we can work on the room and bring you more great food served at the intermission. The donation of $30 includes, of course, a glass of wine or champagne, delicious noshes and a chance to get to know our musicians. By the way, for members of the club and new members that join our MVYC family, the discounted price for the concerts will be $20. We hope that many of you will consider joining our "Country Club" on the water and that includes access to all of the facilities at the Marina City Club. Tennis, 3 pools, gym and even racquet ball are all available to our members and of course our many activities at the yacht club throughout the year. Come to our Sunday dinners to find out more and sign up. When Howard Hughes built the MCC he mandated in the charter that there will always be a yacht club in the facility. MVYC is it.
We will be serving our special Social Sunday dinner from 4 - 7 pm before the concert for our guests that sign up for $5 and also remember that we do this every Sunday for those that wish to join us for our weekly Social Sundays. We are all having a lot of fun performing for you and as you can see from the comments, we are pretty good at it. Tell your friends to join our list of 'Music Lovers' and join us for another wild night of great chamber music at the Marina Venice Yacht Club located in the Marina City Club on Admiralty Way in Marina Del Rey.
We will keep you all updated as the we approach the event.
