Please Note: Dance Workshop Replaces March Sunday Meeting
Last Minute Reminder!
For those of you who have been out of the country, busy reading vampire novels, in hibernation or have forgotten to read your emails, this is a Final reminder of our exciting upcoming "English Country Music and Dance" Workshop on Saturday, March 6, with presenter Pat Petersen. The Workshop will be from 9:30am - 5pm at the Berkeley Community Church, 3701 W. 50th Ave. with an optional evening dance from 7pm -10pm. The cost is $45 for the Workshop and an additional $8 for those attending the evening dance. This will be a rare opportunity for us musicians to not only learn and play Baroque dance music by Handel and Purcell, but also to dance (optional) to this music while our fellow musicians play. Fun, fun, fun! For our procrastinator friends, you can still sign up at the sign in table at Berkeley Church the morning of the Workshop. How easy is that? For more information, please contact our irrepressible Program Director, Paul Brunson, 303-451-5967 email@example.com. Be there or be square.
