Here are two images of Julia pretending to busk outside the CMW storefront earlier this month, as captured by Jori. Note my skepticism as I withhold my dollar bill... this is because Julia can't actually play the violin!
Over many years, Julia and I have enjoyed this running bit of humor, ever since I showed up at her house to solicit fundraising advice carrying my cello case. Julia joining our staff this month represents a significant moment in CMW culture: the first time CMW fundraising will be directed by someone who hasn't also split their time between performing, teaching, and the myriad of other responsibilities that CMW staff positions have been known for over the organization's fifteen-year history.
Joining Sebastian (see his entry below), I'm elated that Julia has agreed to lead CMW's fundraising strategy and development efforts.
