This is the 29th year of fundraising for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Volunteer Council, and one of their most successful endeavors has been their Musical Feast Series. These feature live music with DSO musicians in the homes of local residents and other interesting venues such as the Penguin exhibit at the Detroit Zoo.

My husband, Mark, arranges the musicians for each event, and it’s a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the musicians as well as meet other like-minded people.

I attended a recent Musical Feast in the home of Nora and Guy Barron, featuring the DSO Horn Quartet, beautiful art, and an exquisite strolling buffet by Palate Pleaser.  Each year when the Volunteer Council puts out their brochure, many of the “Feasts” sell out immediately. To learn how to join the “DSO VC” and get on the mailing list, email Esther Lyons at elyons16@comcast.net.

My recent radio show with Jackie Lapin was so amazing and content rich.  The time just flew, but we were able to cover the 12 things no speaker should be without.  If you or someone you know is looking to get known as a speaker, we covered it all!  Plus, Jackie has a terrific program for helping you find places to get booked by meeting planners.

Be sure to scroll down and check out our line-up of radio show guests.  I am so excited about every one of these upcoming interviews that I just want to pinch myself!  Remember, you can listen so many different ways:  Live – Mobile app – iTunes and more.  Just click here to see archives.  Pick a show and you’ll see four different ways to listen!

Mark and I just celebrated 31 years of marriage last week!  He is the best thing that has ever happened to me.  He has supported me every step of the way with this Smart Women project and every other dream I have had.
