Subscribers’ Studio Soiree:

Postponed until further notice

I appreciate all who joined us on June 2, 2019, for the largest Subscribers’ Studio Soiree turnout ever! Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Subscribers’ Studio Soiree is postponed until further notice.

Special thanks go out to Lindsey Willis and CJ Mitchell of Friendly Product, below, whose haunting improvisational ambient music was a welcome addition to the 2019 Soiree.

Much appreciation also goes to Michael Lundquist of Mayflower Cruises and Tours and photographer James C. Williams for providing raffle prizes last year.
