Postponement of April 3rd concert

Hi everyone! In light of current events, I have decided to postpone the April 3rd concert to a time later in the summer or early next fall. Of course all subscribers will get lots of notice for the next concert!

One of the reasons for the delay is that Bill Egnatoff (and Joan as well) is in Ecuador visiting family and may be delayed or even quarantined upon return. Rather than try to replace him and hope for the best, I think it’s prudent to wait.

I am going to use my newly-emptied schedule to process and post some of the video from past concerts so stay tuned!
