Calling all musicians!

Come play at Shadowlands' Fall Ball Take II!  The dance list is below,
with some notes so that you can be sure that you are practicing the
correct version of the piece.  I have already talked to the dance
mistress about the list, and these notes reflect that conversation.  I
plan to have a time to go over these pieces at the event before the
ball, so if there is something you are unsure about, we can address it

If you plan to come to the event, please let me know so that I can
arrange space for you and take you into consideration for different
parts.  If you know you don't have a piece of music, let me know and I
can either e-mail you a copy and/or make sure I have copies available at
the event.

Please forward this e-mail if you know of a group that might be
interested that I haven't sent to already.  Thanks!
