Saturday, May 17, 2014 was our annual Spring Fling, our fundraiser for the Valeria Finzi Memorial Scholarship Fund.  At the lovely home of the Stein-Goldfeder family, we heard the young recipients of this year's awards perform beautifully, assuring us that the future of the harp is in good hands! Then we were treated to a fabulous concert by world-renowned master of the Paraguayan harp, Alfredo Rolando Ortiz. After the performance, we celebrated with a lovely reception.
