2010 was a great year for Harmonious Music and we are looking forward to an even brighter future in 2011. The readers of Times Herald Record agreed as they voted Eric Ortner, the principal violinist of Harmonious Music, into the publication’s annual Best of the Hudson Valley competition. Eric Ortner took third place in the Chamber Music Experience of the Year category for 2010. He followed Erin Slayer who took second and the Greater Montgomery Chamber Series for first.
The award was hard won considering Eric Ortner spent much of 2010 recovering from major ankle surgery in February. He still managed to stand during all of Harmonious Music’s 2010 performances except one.
All and all Harmonious Music would like to thank the Hudson Valley community for their tremendous support. We pledge to continue our commitment to performance excellence in 2011.
