Greetings musicians and musician supporters,
Please arrive 15 minutes earlier than you usually do on Friday this week for group photographs🎬.
We are really keen to have current photos of each group on our web-site and we think this is a good way to achieve that.
Please look for Bella who will take the photographs, she will meet you outside the library front door if your group meets in daylight. And she will meet you inside the library if your group meets after dark.
Bella will be the one with the camera👍.
Thanks so much, and keep up all the good practice and music!
