First Meeting of the Year - A lecture by William Wellborn: "Exploring the Lives and Music of Schubert and Brahms"

Our first event of the year was a lecture by the renowned teacher, preformer, clinician and lecturer - Dr. William Wellborn, presented on Friday, September 14th. There was a time for teachers to mingle and get to know some new members in our branch. Dr. Welborn gave a wonderful slide presentation of his summer tour, focusing on the cities that were traveled by Schubert and Brahms. Some of the memorable cities included Hamburg, Germany, the birthplace of Brahms and Atzenbrugg, Austria to where Schubert made several trips, and some of the famous "Schubertiad" gatherings were held.
