Ambassador Shen took time out of his busy schedule to give us a very warm welcome.
We are very grateful to Mrs. Shen for the beautiful party she offered PARTNERS for the Arts.
Our treasurer, Audrey Pendergast, graciously received all our guests.
Jan Olsen, Keyboarding Without Tears, made the anniversary even merrier with her “bobbles” of composers, which guests took home as mementos.
Our singers: (left to right) baritone Johnathan McCullough, a finalist in Vocal Competition 2013; soprano Jennifer Cherest, the first prizewinner in Vocal Competition 2014; soprano Emily Casey, the second prizewinner in Vocal Competition 2014; and baritone Andrew Pardini, a finalist in Vocal Competition 2014, sang arias from operas and were the stars of the night. Joy Schreier accompanied them.
The attentive and engaged audience had a great time listening to the stars of tomorrow!
