Spring Strings A Hit!

On Saturday, April 5th the Bear Valley Music Festival held their annual spring fundraiser at Betsy Minkler’s picturesque Berkeley Hills home. The success of this year’s event, Spring Strings, was made possible by the dedication of the BVMF board, staff, and some long time Festival supporters. The afternoon was spent mingling and telling stories of past music festivals. Music Director, Michael Morgan announced the exciting 2014 Festival program line-up and the afternoon’s main highlight was the wonderful and lively performance by violinist, Dawn Harms and piano accompanist, Roxanne Michaelian. The day ended with people gathering on the porch, enjoying the spring sunshine, and gazing at the striking view of San Francisco and the bay.
