As an overture to these initiatives: Bertrand and Veronique, of Art’Comedia, our long-term collaborators since 2013 from L’Hermitage in Brittany, have agreed to share a musical number of their choice to brighten our week and keep us all singing. Please join us for:

See you all soon! Enjoy the above and take care.
