The Borough President of Manhattan proclaimed last Sunday as “Broadway Bach Ensemble Appreciation Day,” in honor of our 30th anniversary.

At intermission of our Spring, 2015, concert, original orchestra member Paula Washington spoke of her long friendship with Mike Tietz, the group’s founder; and violist Nancy Dunetz presented him with a framed Proclamation.

Here are a few photos.
