Happy 2016!

From The Lises

A quick run-through 2015.

This was meant to be a Christmas/New Year card. It seems that every year we are just a bit late. Therefore, please, accept this as just the "New Year" card.

We are thankful for another happy and healthy year. Hoping that 2015 was kind to you as well. Wishing you All only Health, Happiness, Prosperity and Love in 2016.

We hope you enjoy the year 2015 in pictures.


Spóźnione lecz gorące życzenia Wesołych Świąt i Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku! Zdrowia, Miłosci oraz powodzenia we wszystkich przedsiewzięciach!

Spring 2015

....could not come soon enough after close to 5 months of continuous snow...

We are all busy working: teaching, learning, playing.

25th Wedding Anniversary

Suzanne and Jordan visit Poland, Czech Republic, and Germany

It was truly unforgettable experience. Incredible faculty members and administrators, talented students, warm and inviting people of Mezzano, breathtaking beauty of the surrounding mountains and nearby Venice; food: fresh, local and so inexpensive. Jarek and Malgosia got to play together again, Jarek biked the incredible routes in Dolomites; Malgosia's parents came from Poland for a week to visit; Maya, surrounded by students from many top music schools in the world, experienced a true awakening in her piano studies.

If you are a musician, please, join us in 2016 for Chamber Music Program and Suzuki Institute!

To było naprawdę niezapomniane przeżycie. Niesamowici wykładowcy i utalentowani studenci, wspaniali ludzie w miasteczku Mezzano, zapierające dech w piersiach piękno okolicznych gór i pobliskiej Wenecji.

Meanwhile, back at home...

At the same time, back in CT, Kuba was the "man of the manor". He was not only working, taking care of a dog but he also kept the bread starter going and learned, by trials and tribulations how to make bread!

W tym czasie Kuba jest "Panem Domu": nie tylko pracuje, zajmuje sie psem, ale również robi i piecze chleb! Co za chłopak!

Late summer

The Fall

The fall was a whirlwind of teaching, playing, many concerts, rehearsals, and school activities. Jarek enjoys chamber music concerts and his job with HSO and his teaching at the Academy (and of course cycling!). Malgosia dives headlong into her passion of teaching! She has the largest studio of students to date! Kuba (20) starts his junior year at Roger Williams; Maya (13) starts 8th grade...we can't quite believe that come late August of 2016 we will have a high schooler at home again! How did that happen??? Suzanne (24) continues to work in Boston; she and Jordan make their home in Arlington, MA. In November Suzanne received her Yoga Instructor certification and Jordan started his new "dream" job.

The highlight of the fall season was an epic wedding of Alex and Carol! Thank you to Czulak and Lee families for this truly unforgettable event!


Jesien przyniosla duzo pracy, wiele koncertów i prób i zajęć szkolnych. Kuba (20) rozpoczyna trzeci rok na uniwerytecie Roger Williams i wygrywa konkurs na esej! Maya (13) rozpoczyna 8 klasę … aż trudno uwierzyć, że w końca sierpnia 2016 rook będziemy mieli uczennincę szkoły średniej! Jak to się stało??? Zuzia (24) nadal pracuje w Bostonie; mieszkaja z Jordanem w Arlington. Zuzia otrzymała certyfikat instruktorki jogi i Jordan rozpoczął swoją nową "wymarzoną" pracę, którą uwielbia. Wydarzeniem jesieni był wspanialy ślub Alexa i Carol! Dziękujemy rodzinom Czulakow i Lee!

The Winter...thus far.

We are so grateful for all that this year brought us. If the 2016 keeps it up, we will be just fine :-).

Enjoy some favorite photos below. See you all in a year!
