This event was canceled and we were not informed that it was. I drove all the way from home, found parking and stayed waiting for the event for over an hour. I would appreciate if the public receives an email or notice of some sort when and even gets canceled.

The music was excellently played on period instruments. The singing was performed beautifully. The theme of the program was well demonstrated. I hope they do more performances.
