President's Message

Dear Irvine Branch Members,


It was delightful to see so many of our members virtually at our first branch meeting on September 23. Even though it has been over six months since we started self-protection, staying home, teaching lessons and having meetings via internet, we may have to continue this way for a while, probably until next year.


Since the branch festivals and CM testing will now be going on virtually, it may be a challenge for many of us to get familiar with entering festivals and CM tests electronically. We will all get there in time by asking questions and helping each other.


Thanks to our board members’ help getting this new school year started smoothly under the special circumstances. Without your support and help, it would not be possible for

me to handle the huge task caused by Covid-19.


The new yearbook of our branch has been posted on our branch website already by Ann Tenney. Also, the hard copies are ready if you want to have one. Please contact me when you are able to pick it up at Yamaha Music Center. I will leave one under your name for you. You can email or text me. (949-521-7934 or


Welcome to the new members joining our branch this year: Chia Huei Chen, Esther Choi, Sally Emilia,Joong-In Rhee, John Sullivan, Yao Wang, Gina Yoon, and Yuan Yi.


The branch meeting will be on the third Wednesday of October via Zoom meeting. Our presenter will be an experienced piano tuner, Ed Whitten. Please join us for this meeting and we can all enjoy seeing each other again. The meeting ID and passcode will be sent out the week before the meeting. Looking forward to seeing you all. Wishing you a healthy and musical month.
