N.B. In case this is important to you: We were unexpectedly unable to rent a piano to fit into the space at St. Gabriel’s (Saturday), so we will be using a high-end digital piano for this performance. About a third of the concert is with piano, so I provide this information in case it affects which performance you choose.
See you there!!
