Mother’s Day Recognition

In honor of Mother’s Day, New Philharmonia would like to recognize and applaud the mothers of our musicians, many of whom played a pivotal role in guiding their children towards music. New Phil is extremely grateful for the many sacrifices our mothers have made over the years, and equally grateful for these generous donations made in their honor. Thank you!

In honor of my mom, Patricia Fiske, who tolerated hearing me hack away at the Mendelssohn Concerto every day of the lockdown after the blizzard of 1978, and still prefers not to listen to it.
