Our on-line ensemble got underway on Monday 8th March at 7pm, hosted by Francisco Correa, with music provided by Helen James. It was a great start to this event, which will be held every two weeks. We had eleven players which is near the minimum necessary for the 3-4 parts of the music, it would be great if we could get a few more. Any members who are interested in joining us contact Francisco at pacoguitar@gmail.com.
