News - 

• Alison played a "Celebrate Panama Concert" at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in November, in honor of the Independence Days of Panama: November 3, the day of Panama's separation from Colombia, and Panamanian Flag Day on November 4. This was wonderfully apt, since the Spreckels Organ was deeded to the City of San Diego in 1915 at the opening of the Panama-California Exposition. It was one of the free weekly concerts presented there every Sunday at 2 pm.

She was joined by the lovely ladies (and young gentlemen) of Sonares De Tierra, a folkloric dance troupe from the House of Panama in Balboa Park. The organizer, Vielsy Rodriguez, loaned Alison an outfit that matched the dancers and put her hair up with a pretty hairpiece.

She was also accompanied by guest percussionists, Arnie Schoenberg, Cynthia Hernandez, and Roy de Vries. Before the concert, they even "jammed" together on some Panamanian music! 

Baritone John Burt Polhamus also joined Alison to sing a song from 1913 called "San Diego: You're the Best City on the Coast!" He also assisted her by playing a sort of rumba part on the choir manual for one of the Panamanian dances that were on the program.  Thanks, John!

Alison's special guest was her student, Michele Eggleston, who played Bach's Toccata in D Minor, BWV 565.

• Millennia Consort begins a new season in residence at St. James by the Sea Episcopal Church, La Jolla, CA where we welcome Alex Benestelli, the new Director of Music. 

• The San Diego Baroque Soloists with Alison Luedecke, harpsichord, Pierre Joubert, violin, Alex Greenbaum, cello joined the San Diego Master Chorale, under the direction of John Russell for our first collaboration. It was an amazing collaboration and we all look forward to more!  www.sdbaroque.com.
