membership, which now stands at over 60, includes a wide cross-
section of the music-loving men and women, youth and seniors,
singles and couples. Included are both those who share their time
and talent on a regular basis and those who volunteer on an as-
needed basis for special events or special projects.

Meetings are held on an occasional basis and are optional. Want to learn more about
