The VYO master classes I mentioned are Nov 5th for trombone and Nov
15th for bassoon. They are free to EVERYONE and ANYONE and are held at
Saint Michael's Elley Long Center. I will definitely be attending one
or both and am happy to organize car pooling if folks are interested.
Perhaps I'll put up a sign up sheet on the NAfME (NAf you, I hardly
know you!) board,
