Recital Hall - Sandra Gu

The Foster City Community Center will be undergoing renovations at the end of this year and to prepare, they have asked us to move our 2 grand pianos out of the Wind Room after our December 2019 recitals. We urgently need to find a new home for our pianos and for your recitals. If we cannot find a new space we will be forced to look at less desirable options such as putting the pianos in storage or selling them. We are considering all possibilities including churches, community centers, schools, libraries, and event spaces.
If you have any suggestions please email Sandra Gu at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or get in touch with one of our board members.

Branch Programs - Millie Lee Siu, Vice President
 
Dear Teachers,

We had a wonderful pedagogy meeting on Friday September 20. Twenty teachers attended and shared interesting ideas. Please stay tuned, there will be more events and meetings coming up in the next few months.

Attention String Teachers: We are considering organizing a master class in the winter for intermediate string students if there is enough interest. If you have students who would like to participate or if you would like to suggest a master class leader, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
