Victoria and Vancouver Island
A Casual Gathering
Date:August 14, 2017 evening
Venue: James Bay New Horizons Centre.
Details of cost (low) and music (not too tricky) to follow.
In August on the Island we will be holding a casual gathering on Monday evening, August 14, at the James Bay New Horizons Centre. A couple of boxes of diverse recorder music has come to me from a retired player in Powell River. It's time to share it with the community, along with any instruments that people may want to sell or trade. Let’s make it a bit of a party - bring finger food and drink, do a little playing , a little visiting, some "shopping" and spend a very pleasant musical evening.
Please respond if you would like to come. Stacey
