Musicians who will be playing for the CF ball:

Please get in touch if you're willing to play.

I'd like to have rehearsals every morning, as last year. If you'll need music transposed, the sooner you get in touch the better. If you'd like a cd of the ball list so you know what you're aiming for when you practice, get in touch and I'll mail you one.
