   Hi, guys.  Darkwood Choir practice for Tuesday, May 31, will be at
the home of Giuliana deLucca.  Bring your favorite tea.  Please notify
anyone you know who is interested in the choir, but is not yet on the
Darkwood or Darkwood Choir mailing list.

We welcome newcomers.  :-)

TIME:  7:30 pm to 9:30 pm, Tuesday, May 31

PLACE:  Giuliana deLucca's house

1222 Bay St. Santa Cruz, CA  95060


It's half a block towards the beach from Mission St. - the opposite
direction of St. David's.  (yahoo maps & mapquest both give accurate
directions here)

** Pet Warning **  Giuliana has two dogs and a cat.  The dogs will be
outside during choir practice.

One of the reasons we're having practice in Santa Cruz this time is so 
that I, and any of you who are interested, can go listen to my daughter 
Cassandra take the final exam in her singing class at Cabrillo College 
on Tuesday afternoon, and still make it to choir practice afterward. 
 It's a performance exam, to which friends and family (that's us) are 
invited to provide an audience.  Many of you already know and love 
Cassandra, and she would love to have Darkwood people come listen to her 

Below is the info about it she posted about it on her mailing list.
