"The Pleasure of Your Company"
Free Music Series
on Special Sunday Afternoons at 2:30 P.M.
The Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library invites you to attend the "Pleasure of Your Company" series of music concerts, which are presented on selected Sundays at 2:30 pm in the Community Room at the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center. The concerts are free (with an occasional, rare, exception) and are open to the public. A suggested donation of $5 per person would be gratefully accepted, but is not required. A complimentary reception in the Library courtyard will follow each concert, with an opportunity to meet the performers.
Concertgoers are welcome to park their cars in the parking lots adjacent to the library and are asked to enter the Community Room through the courtyard gate, which is adjacent to the main parking lot on the east side of the Library Center. Patrons are cautioned not to park along red-curbed areas; the police will issue tickets. Offsite, overflow parking is available on Meanley Drive, south of the Library. Just take the paved walkway to the Library Center. Please allow 10 minutes to walk from Meanley Drive to the Community Room. (==> Click Here <==) for more information about parking.

Good news for music lovers! The Pleasure of Your Company, our concert series, has resumed. Wendy Tompkins, SRFOL Past President, has assumed the coordinator position and will be assisted by some returning and some new volunteers. We can also use a few more good volunteers who are willing to assist by taking on one or more of the tasks essential to keeping our music program going. We've put together a fairly detailed list of the various tasks involved in "orchestrating" our concert series and would be happy to share this with you. Tasks include arranging for performers, fundraising, acknowledging donors, helping out at concerts, etc. Please let us know if you're interested in discussing how you might become involved. We'd love to have you join us! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858-484-6231. Thank you!
Sponsorship Opportunities: The "Pleasure of Your Company" concert series, sponsored by Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library, depends on donations to enable us to present the finest musicians in the San Diego area. If you have not already done so, please consider becoming a sponsor of our series at the Chorus ($25), Concertmaster ($50), Maestro ($100), or Symphony ($400) level. Donors of $400 or more may select a concert to sponsor. All donors of $25 or more will be acknowledged in future programs (unless the donor wishes to remain anonymous), and donations are tax-deductible. Checks should be made payable to "SRFOL" and designated "Music Program." Please send email to the POYC Coordinator, if you would like to sponsor a concert.
Volunteers Needed: The leadership of our music program has been in a transition mode recently, and we're attempting to reorganize the committee so that we can continue the tradition of presenting monthly concerts in our wonderful venue at the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center. We do not currently have a chair for our music program committee, and our long-running monthly concert series, The Pleasure of Your Company, is in imminent danger of being abandoned. This would be a shame, as our concert attendance has been steadily increasing, and we have very nice support from donors which supplements that provided by Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library. We also have a wonderful venue for concerts with probably the largest community room in a San Diego branch library, good acoustics, an exceptionally fine piano, and a stage. Other communities are envious of our fine facilities. Musicians from the area and even from other states are anxious to perform in our concert series, so there's no problem finding excellent performers. Having a quality music series at our library provides a delightful Sunday afternoon experience in an informal atmosphere—right in our own community. Very importantly, we also have a core of enthusiastic volunteers who have expressed willingness to help out with various aspects of putting on the concerts. However, at this time we do not have anybody who has stepped forward to provide overall coordination. If you are interested in exploring this opportunity or know somebody whom you think might be a good candidate, please let us know.
