Regular afternoon and evening classes, Monday, Jan 22

There is a late start tomorrow, for Cherry Creek 
District.  This should not affect the afternoon and evening orchestra classes at Fox Hollow and Laredo.  Having said that, if you commute from a far distance, for afternoon or evening classes, please use your own judgment for safety of commute, if we are still having ice and snow.  

Please stay tuned to this blogspot, for any changes the schedule may take, though things are set to go at usual time and places for tomorrow.  

See you soon!
