On Apr. 18, Ambassador of Bulgaria Elena Poptodorova hosted Partners for the Arts’ spring musicale at her residence. Leilane Grimaldi Mehler recently established the nonprofit to assist emerging performing artists not under professional management to interact with performing arts organizations, schools of music and opera companies in the mid-Atlantic region and to sponsor an annual competition with cash awards. The musicale showcased mezzo-soprano Leah Hawkins accompanied by pianist Frank Colon, soprano Yeji Yoon and Bulgarian pianists Ralitza Patcheva and Ivo Kaltchev. The Ambassador invited the group to return to the residence for their September event. Guests enjoyed a plentiful pre- and post-performance buffet.

What a fine Spring evening. The ambassador's residence has a beautiful garden. It was such fun to sit on the swing and enjoy the flowers.
