Next Play Day

The next play day will be on Sunday August 8th in the Music Room of St Joseph's School, 65 Ross River Road, Mundingburra, 2.00 – 4.30. Malcolm Tattersall will be the leader of the session. Malcolm will select music for the afternoon's playing with one eye on the David Lawrence workshop a week later and the other on immediate results. Expect World Music and vocal music influences but be prepared to enjoy yourself whether or not you plan to attend David's session.

Please bring recorders, music stands, something to share for afternoon tea and a gold coin to help pay for the day's expenses.
