Celebrating 25 years

In 2006, the East Winds celebrated its 25th year, culminating with a 25th anniversary concert at Rodef Shalom on October 28 at 8pm. The concert was sponsored by the Rodef Shalom Brotherhood, and audience members were asked to bring canned goods for the Squirrel Hill SuperPantry. The audience sang Happy Birthday to the group, which was followed by rousing applause. The concert program included pieces conducted by past conductors Jay Stivanson and Jim Rosetti, as well as Susan Sands.
