Hannah Addario-Berry performed her first concert with Del Sol officially as our new cellist during the residency at the Walden School in New Hampshire in July.

Hannah succeeds Monica Scott, who supplied the prerequisite bass line over the last four years. We thank Monica and her husband, Dominique, for their hard work and artistic contributions.

Many of you have seen Hannah in performance with us at our recent collaborations with Melody of China, while she was substituting for Monica, who was recovering from a finger injury.

We are currently in residence at the Tahoe Music Festival Academy and Bay Area fans will be able to hear Hannah in her first local concert as the Del Sol cellist this Saturday in San Jose (please see above for details)


Del Sol Performing Arts Organization continues to strengthen its organizational capabilities. In June 2006, we were pleased to welcome Juli Weiss to the DSPAO Board of Directors. Dr. Weiss has extensive development and leadership experience in the non-profit arena. For the past 11 years Dr. Weiss has been a principal at Scientific Solutions in the non-profit and development sector. She has served on the Nueva School Board of Trustees since 1995. Other positions Dr. Weiss has held include Co-Founder, President and Executive Director of California Summer Music, an advanced chamber music program for young musicians ages 12-20; Executive Director of the Pacific Vascular Research Foundation; and Program Officer at the Koret Foundation.

We are excited to have Juli join our Del Sol family and look forward to working with her on future projects and the growth of our organization.
