General Information

Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.  This also gives us more time to plan the music to suit each player's capabilities.

If, after booking, you find you will be unable to come, please let us know as soon as possible.  Your absence may mean that we are obliged to change some of the music.  Also, someone else might like to be offered the opportunity to participate.
