Join the Fortnightly Music Club today!  
 
Members of the Fortnightly are encouraged to attend all of the concerts that the club produces. This includes eight public concerts that are held in the Palo Alto Arts Center at Newell Road and Embarcadero Road in Palo Alto and six private concerts that are held in the homes of club members. Your fellow members performing that evening will appreciate your support as an audience member!
The Club covers, for the benefit of its members, a membership directory with the names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of all of its members. The directory also includes information about club members' musical interests, the instruments they play, and if they are singers, conductors, or composers. Club members receive this updated directory every year.
Members are encouraged to help run the club. They can, for example, become involved in planning concerts as a board member, helping setting up concerts (with programs and refreshments), and in advertising the club to the public. And they are expected to serve on the club's Board of Directors which oversees the club's operations.
Club members are invited to audition for the opportunity to perform in the club's public Formal Concerts after joining the club and becoming familiar with the club's performance standards. If they are approved to perform publicly this information is included in the membership directory. Club members who want to perform at Informal Concerts are able to arrange for that after they have become members. No audition is necessary for this option.
All club members receive email messages from the club president announcing club events and all club members have the satisfaction of knowing that they are a part of a club that supports quality live performances in our Bay Area community.

October 31, 2016, at 8 pm
