DMV Happy Hour

April 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sheila and Leslie

Join us for a wide-ranging discussion on the status of arts organizations in the Washington, DC area in the era of COVID-19. Our special guest will be Jenny Bilfield, president and CEO of Washington Performing Arts, WPA, one of the premier arts organizations in DC. Jenny, who happens to be the daughter of HCES and HCHS alumna Mildred Liebowitz ’39, will share some of the creative ways WPA has reinvented itself in light of the pandemic and the need to engage audiences virtually. One of our DMV facilitators, Leslie Luxemburg ‘64, who is president of the Friday Morning Music Club, a large multi faceted volunteer arts organization composed of classically trained musicians, will share how her organization has maintained its status quo. Marie KORN Cohen ’75 will contribute how the Washington Balalaika Society, of which she is a board member, has been surviving as a small, non professional group.

Co-hosts Sheila Anderson ’80 and Leslie Luxemburg ’64 invite people active in other arts organizations, members of choral groups, theater troupes, church choirs, orchestras, etc. to join the discussion and share how they have been coping during this past year. As a participant or audience member, what do you most look forward to when we return to some semblance of normalcy in the entertainment realm?

Please join us for what is sure to be a fascinating and informative hour! Sign up now.
