Friday Musicale honors past presidents at 128th season opener

Friday Musicale honors past presidents at 128th season opener
The ribbon is cut to commemorate the opening of the 128th season for Friday Musicale.

It was fitting, indeed, that the 128th season opening concert at Friday Musicale, starring  Elena Doubovitskaya and Svetlana Belsky of the EStralla Piano Duo, was dedicated to the original Ladies of Friday Musicale.

Friday Musicale began in 1890 in the living room of Claudia L’Engle. Traditionally the president of the nonprofit has been a woman.

Past presidents still in the area were invited to celebrate the new season at a pre-concert reception and commemorative ceremony. Henson Markham, the only past male president, was in attendance, as was Dr. Charles Moreland, representing the Office of the Mayor. Moreland noted he had helped fight the fire in 1995 which partially destroyed the original auditorium.
