In attendance: Hanan Bell, John Dunne, Teresa Metzger-Howe, Linda O'Gara, Koko Morgan, Kathleen O'Keefe, Doug Potter, Bruce Sherman, and Gennie Winkler

The minutes from February 10, 2016 were approved.

All the members have paid their dues.

Spring Concerts
For the spring venues the brass ensemble will start in the lofts. Gennie will check to see if there is room at Josphinum for all the ensemble members. At Josephinum the warm-up will start at 7:00 pm with the concert beginning at 7:30 pm. Hopefully, this will increase the size of the audience.

Payment to Soloists
Soloists who are professionals will be paid $200 total for 2 rehearsals and 2 concerts. If soloists are students, they will not be paid.

The finances will be updated at the next meeting.

Development Director
John will be retiring from the orchestra. He needs to mentor someone. The deadline for the 4Culture grant is September 16th. John will be willing to help with this grant.
