The temperatures outside may be cooling off, but it’s quite the opposite inside the kitchen of 13-year old Madelynn Martin. With the home oven set to 350 degrees, you can even say it’s sweltering. That’s part of what her popular “Very Strawberry” recipe calls for: two large eggs, a stick and a half of butter, some baking flour, milk, fresh strawberries—and a hot oven.

Music Masterclass Series
My name is Herb Scott and I am the executive director of the Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation. I am reaching out to you because our organization is hosting a free masterclass series in partnership with DPR this Fall and I wanted to reach out and see if you would recommend any of your students to participate.
The goal of the masterclass is to prepare students in grades 5-12 for music competitions, compete for first chair, or plan to audition for college/university music programs.
Our first masterclass kicks off Saturday Oct. 26th and students can register at musicmaster.splashthat.com
Please let me know if you would be able to assist in providing students for this series.
All the best,
Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation
