Previous Concert Repertoire

The choice of music we play is SO important! It must be challenging but within our ability to play well.

I select from a wide range of styles and eras of music, but every piece must be enjoyable!

Every time I call a tune, I want someone in the room to say "Yay, this is my favorite!"
