November 2017 Newsletter

First of all, thank you to all who came to our first concert of the season and be part of that enthusiastic audience. We are so glad we brought back Gabrielle Chou to perform for us.  She is an exceptional talent, as was her accompanist for her violin pieces, Ocala’s own Marie Jo.

The year’s theme “ENCORE” conveys that we are bringing back to Ocala performers from the past who were significant hits, and whose return was requested by YOU, our audience members. Our original plan for the December 10th concert had to be changed as those performers were not available; however, we were fortunate and are able to bring back another popular performer: classical guitarist, Dr. Ben Pila. He will have a Christmas music portion featured in his program – always a delight on the guitar.

On February 4, 2018, we bring back last year’s sensational violist, David Pedraza now joined as a member of a piano trio (piano, clarinet and viola).

And we conclude our program on March 18th with a sampling of the University of Florida chamber ensembles, coached by Dr. Hee Jung Kang.

Our President, Richard has been compiling an email list from the donor sheets returned to the MCMS this fall, and has been updating that (at this moment still a small) group with periodic emails. If you want to be added to his email list, just email him at with your preferred email to be used.
Also check that our address has changed:
