MD/DC Annual Membership Meeting, May 2009

The Annual Membership Meeting took place on May 17, 2009, at the Lutheran Church of St. Andrew on New Hampshire Road in Silver Spring.

Over 50 chapter members and guests attended. During a brief board meeting, the guests watched a DVD presentation of Mark Wood, the Alternative Style Rock violinist.

The sit-down dinner came next, followed by the presentation of two awards. Paul Scimonelli received the Outstanding Teacher of the Year Award, and Lorraine Combs received the Outstanding Service to Strings Award.

The guest speaker was Maria Montano of Venezuela, who spoke about “El Sistema,” the remarkable and successful free public orchestra music system throughout that country.

Harpist Peggy Houng, a Junior Division finalist in the ASTA 2009 National Solo Competition, performed two selections for the group.
