1. PLEASE BE ON TIME! We don’t want to miss you (although we will likely be pretty easy to catch up with, or you can meet us at the second meeting spot or the performance venue). Florence performances only have one meeting spot.
2. If you don’t already have one of the collaborators’ phone numbers, contact us for Kelly’s number in case you have day-of questions. Also contact us if you need Kelly's or Marie's addresses.
3. In case of rain, check Facebook or this page for any cancellations. We do not perform in precipitation for safety reasons.
4. August 13th is also a rain date for the Amherst performances, so if August 6th is postponed, the schedule on the 13th will change. We will perform once in Amherst and once at Look Park.
