We’ve had a few emails and comments about next year’s program.  We’re not set up for applications for 2009 just yet — we’re confirming the venue dates, and then we’ll announce the dates and repertoire together, and set the times for auditions. Once we have our audition venues and dates, we’ll be able to post the application form.  Please check back in a month or so — we should be up to date by then.
