Organist Sophie Veronique has had emergency eye surgery and is unable to make the flight here for her appearance. So our master class will not happen, and neither will the (FOKO) concert at Merrill Auditorium on Tuesday. This is obviously very short notice, so if you are able to call folks who you know don't have email, it would be a great help.
