The Cosgrove Music Club starts the season |

The Cosgrove Music Club began its 99th year of “Enjoying Music Together” on October 4, 2021 at the home of Carolyn Pugsley. The Club was led by the 2021-2022 roster of leaders: President: Joan Davison, Vice-President: Edna Schmidt, Secretary: Debbie Smith and Treasurer: Kathy Hegler. This year’s theme is “As You Like It”. The Club had not met for over a year due to the pandemic and were happy to be together with lots of things to discuss after the long intermission.

Members took advantage of a program postponed from April of the 2019-2020 season entitled “Absolute Best Composers” “OPQRS”. A Schubert duo, “Serenade” and Valerie Roth Roubos’ duo, “Carnivale” were presented by Erin Blake and Liz Holgate, Cornet Solos, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight? (from “The Lion King”… Lyricist Rice), and “Colors of the Wind” from Disney’s “Pocahontas” (lyrics by S. Schwartz) were performed by Bev Ewer. Erin Blake and Carolyn Pugsley performed the vocal duo “Here I Am Lord” (by Daniel L. Schutte), followed by Pugsley presenting vocal solos, “Wedding Song” (by Heinrich Schuetz), and “Edelweis” by Richard Rodgers, from “The Sound of Music.” Liz Holgate presented two piano solos, “Tales from the Vienna Woods” by Johann Strauss, and “Polish Dance” by Scharwemka. The program ended with a vocal trio arrangement of Cole Porter’s “Brush Up Your Shakespeare”, presented by Blake, Ewer and Pugsley. Blake and Ewer served up a delicious apple dessert.
