Thank you for a wonderful evening! The music was fantastic and the hosts very gracious. This was my first groupmuse, but definitely not my last.

It was great to see everyone last night, and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as Nancy and I did. A wonderful evening of music - we hope to do it again in the near future, and/or to see some of you at some other terrific groupmuse events.
