When not crunching the numbers, Mariam plays the flute

Mariam with FluteOver the years, Community Forklift has attracted employees with unusual talents, from a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist to a Lady Arm Wrestler. A current example is our Director of Administration, Mariam d’Eustachio, whose career path includes work as a professional musician.

In fact, she’ll be playing her flute in two free concerts in Kensington next month.  Please join us to cheer her on, and to support a great cause!

Staring Into Eternity:

Two free concerts to benefit Baltimore Symphony’s “Orchkids” Program

Members of the Fairfax Symphony, National Philharmonic, NIH Philharmonia, UMD Symphony, and other orchestras will collaborate with world-renowned soprano Linda Mabbs to benefit Baltimore Symphony’s extraordinary “OrchKids” program, now providing free instruments, lessons, meals, and academic tutoring to over 1,000 children in Baltimore City.

The program will begin with Beethoven’s Overture to “Fidelio”, after which Ms. Mabbs, famous for her interpretation of Strauss, will sing the composer’s haunting “Four Last Songs” of 1948.   The concert will conclude with Anton Bruckner’s mystical Ninth Symphony, left unfinished at his death in 1896.  James Siranovich, longtime assistant conductor of the Fairfax Symphony, will conduct.
