-=-Feb 3rd - First Monthly Club night -=-
We are planning to make our evenings at Hermann's "club nights" with a central theme and guest mentor or group. This is a great opportunity for participation by our various members, groups and programs. This will be another occasion to feature many of our wonderful singers and to focus on and explore certain areas of jazz as instrumentals or vocals.
The first Wednesday of each month will work well, so lets make it happen.
We've got rhythm, We've got music - who could ask for anything more...
