Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to one and all! This has been a busy year for the Ferris Burtis Music Foundation. We have allocated $9,000.00 to help six talented young artists throughout the year. Yevgeny Kutik, The Elektra Ensemble, Julian Müller, and Morwenna Boyd have all received educational or career help from the Foundation.

We have been receiving end-of-year gifts from a number of people, including one very generous gift of $5,000.00. My thanks to these generous donors. I encourage you, if you are interested in helping the Foundation continue its work, to consider sending a tax-free gift to Ferris Burtis Foundation, %Berkshire Taconic Foundation, 800 North Main Street, Sheffield, MA 01257, before January 1st.

On June 10th, 2012, we will present our second gala Fund raising concert at the Sandisfield Arts Center with all of the above-mentioned artists performing. Save the date and plan to attend.

Thank you for any gift you may wish to make.
