Message from the President

Welcome to the 138th season of the Chopin Music Club, in residence at the Music Mansion in Providence. The club has thrived under the leadership of past presidents, most recently Barbara Speer, who resigned at the end of last year.

I will be serving as your interim president this year and want to assure you that the dedicated board will work diligently to preserve and continue our musical mission. As you attend club events this year please keep an eye and an ear open for whom you would like to have serving as your next president.

Please welcome Gabriel Alfieri as our new membership chair. If you know people who would like to join
the club as an active performing member, or as an associate member, have them speak to Gabriel. Also, the board seeks assistance from the community for the work of the various committees (pp. 45 and to join the board as Directors (board members without specific duties). If you are so inclined, consider volunteering with the organization -- it is a great opportunity to assist in overseeing the direction of a venerable Providence institution.

With that said, I invite you to enjoy the performances this season!

John Simpson
President and Director
