 A message from CYMBAL President, Denise Menzies:

A special THANK YOU this month goes to the Conces Family who own PAK MAIL at Raleys Center.  They have Generously made CYMBAL the Community Corner Charity of the month and kicked it off with a $1000 donation.  They will MATCH up to $1000 more in donations received in the Month of April  Please stop by PAK Mail and check out our display and thank the Conces Family.  There is also Cymbal membership and donation information and a BLACK box where you can drop cash or check donations to be matched. 

Stay tuned to learn more about amazing opportunities for our student musicians this summer during the Classical Tahoe Concert Series July 27-August 12.   Cymbal has partnered with Classical Tahoe and the Firefly Foundation to create programs including a Student Usher Program (with backstage access and meet and greets with artists) and  Individual and Group Master classes with visiting musicians.  More information will be released this month on the Classical Tahoe Website.  classicaltahoe.org

As summer approaches, it is a great time to check out music camps and talk to your teachers about summer music workshop and performance opportunities.

I look forward to seeing our Cymbal members and supporters at our MOONLIGHT JAZZ CLUB fundraiser on May 4th at the Chateau.  If you cannot attend, please consider a donation.  This is our only fundraiser for the year.  Through the efforts of CYMBAL, YOU are able to support MUSIC EDUCATION in our three public schools and KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING in INCLINE!
