The Board of Directors of the Jussi Björling Society - USA will be having a board meeting in Washington D.C. the weekend of November 15 and 16, 2019. On FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 15, we are making plans to attend the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, a concert performance of Act II of Tristan und Isolde, featuring Stephen Gould and Christine Goerke, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. We will be gathering together for dinner at a convenient restaurant around 5:30 pm; the concert begins at 8 pm. We hope any of you who live or will be visiting in the DC area on that date will join us for dinner and the concert! Ticket prices for the concert, (orchestra seats), are ranging from $80 to $85. We will be pursuing a group rate, which may offer us a 10% discount, or maybe better, depending on how many of us sign up. (We will all be paying our own way for dinner.) Here is the link for more information on the concert: http://www.kennedy-center.org/calendar/event/NUCSE
Kennedy Center will be starting to pre-book group sales in April, so I would like to have an accurate count this month. The procedure will be:
1. Please sign up with me by April 30, 2019, by means of the Contact button on our website: www.jussibjorlingsociety.org;
2. Once I have the count, I will pre-book with the Kennedy Center and will get back to all participants about the precise cost of your ticket;
3. You will then send your payment, made out to JBS-USA, directly to the Jussi Björling Society, in care of our treasurer, Stephen Fischman, at 26582 Dolorosa, Mission Viejo, CA 92691. Or you may use your credit card to pay online through our website, www.jussibjorlingsociety.org.
4. JBS-USA will pay for all the tickets and will have them for you that evening.
Join us for this wonderful musical occasion!
With warmest greetings,
