Start the new year with beautiful music from Gilbert and Sullivan. You will hear many of your favorite songs from a classic Gilbert & Sullivan show - and even get the chance to sing along if you like. More details coming soon!

Before the music, very briefly, we will have reports on the Society, hear plans for 2017 and our Summer Grand Production of "The Pirates of Penzance," and elect the board of directors.

We hope to see you there! This performance is free.
