The National Society of Arts & Letters-Florida East Coast Chapter hosted it's annual High Tea on February 24th. The signature event, held at the Royal Palm Yacht
& Country Club residence of Art Patrons Jay & Marilyn Nelson, is aimed at attracting new members and featuring NSAL's talented scholarship winning musicians.
President, Shari Upbin, welcomed attendees to the High Tea, who included South Florida Patrons, NSAL members, guests and performers.
Each year the highlight of the High Tea is the musical program, which features award winning young musicians who have participated in NSAL competitions or scholarships. Performing at this year's event were Doniyor Zuparov, cellist, and Feruza Dadabaeva, pianist, both gifted musicians from Uzbekistan. Doniyor Zuparov, a student at Lynn University Conservatory of Music, was the winner of the 2013 National Society of Arts and Letters Lynn University String Scholarship. Feruza, a music student at Florida Atlantic University, was the piano accompanist for Doniyor. She performed a dramatic piano solo by Rachmaninov. Offerings included music composed by Bach, Paganini and climaxed with a lively rendition of the Hungarian Rhapsody. The musicians received a standing ovation for their outstanding performances.
NSAL is dedicated to helping promising talent through competitions, scholarships, financial assistance, master classes and career introductions. It is the premier non-profit organization that supports young artist’s career aspirations in visual and performing arts.
