Fall Benefit Virtual Concert available Sunday, November 29, 2020

Dear DGMC Members and Friends,


On Sunday, November 29th at 3:00 PM we will release our Fall Benefit Concert.  This will be a full concert – just like the House Concerts we have been holding for the last three years – except it will be a virtual concert that you can view from our website.   This is always a wonderful concert and now it will be available to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.  This is a free concert but we hope it will encourage you to help support our student music awards.  All donations received from this benefit concert will be used to fund the DGMC student music awards to be awarded in the spring of 2021. …
