No rehearsal March 25 or April 1 (Easter). Resume April 8th or…

Our regular pattern of Sunday rehearsals (12:30-2:30pm) should resume on April 8, depending on the weather.  When the weather is warm enough, we’ll resume OUTDOOR rehearsals at Maines Field, Florence – our standard rehearsal location for the past 10 summers.   (We lack an indoor alternative for April 8, so may have to cancel that one.)

On Sunday April 15 we will rehearse at the Pathways Common House in Florence, MA.  We thank our friends at Pathways for providing such a lovely and spacious room. We have enjoyed that space once a month this winter.
