Music is the fourth great material want, first food, then clothes, then shelter, then music. ~ Christian Nestell Bovee

I think its so cool that you can pick up the guitar and create something that didn’t exist 5 minutes ago. You can write something that no ones ever heard before. You have music at your fingertips. ~ Michelle Branch

MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

jcphone1

Moving can be draining but when you land on your feet in exactly the right place, it’s all worth the trouble.  After living in Broward County, Florida, since 1984, being in Palm Beach County is like having a new pair of shoes.  You have to walk around in them for a while to get familiar with them.  Of course, I’ve been walking because I love to walk and I’ve been swimming in the ocean and at the pool but driving around is really nice.  It’s like the country up here, just 30 miles up the road from Fort Lauderdale.  It’s quiet and far less traffic, so I can think!

What I’ve been thinking about is our 4th compilation CD for which we have five out of ten of the fabulous female composers.  We’re waiting for the other five to step up to the plate and submit their songs.  Are you in that five?  In September, we got five new members – Steve Tiger, Charlotte Dilks, Elena Correira, Jackie De Los Santos, and Celeste Ray.  Steve and Charlotte joined the Outreach Committee chaired by Ronnie Dunayer.  This committee is working on two upcoming events:

  • WIJSF Fundraiser on November 7 @ 6-9 p.m. at the Delray Oaks West Recreation Center, featuring Debbie Pierce on sax and Lorna Lesperance, our illustrious President, on guitar, plus vendors, raffle prizes, and a jazz art auction.  The donation is $10 and this event is sponsored by Marika Guyton of AboutU4U, LLC Wedding Planners
  • Women in Music Series @ The Crest Theater, Delray Beach, FL, in March, April and May 2014.  We are raising funds for these concerts that will feature five bands led by our members.

Your attendance at the fundraiser will help us move in the forward direction toward the Women in Music Series.  Members who bring two new members will get their 2014 dues waived.  We will have the WIJSF Music Collections II and III for sale for $15 each or two for $25.  These CDs feature our fabulous female composers and help to raise income for the work we do to promote women musicians, globally.  So, SAVE THE DATE – November 7 @ 6-9 p.m. and, if you are in Broward, Miami-Dade, or West Palm Beach, start a car pool, today!

Love and Music,
Diva JC
