Norton Park Concert CANCELLED

Hi All,
  Mother Nature has done it again.  Because of the wet and Cold we will not have our concert tonight.  Please make sure you will be at rehearsal next week.  Time away from this music makes us vulnerable to careless mistakes.  See you on the 13th and then on the 24th.
