I have started to update the web site...finally. This unfortunately has to be done whenever there is a break in teaching and concerts. So, while the site is incomplete it does have numerous updates.
This year we have returning faculty performers, Beverly Au, Jerome Ducharme, Valerie Belanger, Dale Stuckenbruck, Barbara Fusco-Spero, and James Erikson. New this year will be Lex Dashnaw, leading a community choir and Dale's "Kammermusik" baroque string ensemble.
Save the link and check back regularly. Hope that some of you can be with us!!
