Ball In The House, with our own Monty Hill, in Newton (MA) on April 1st

Good morning. Hope that you are having a refreshing morning. It was great to be back at rehearsal last night.  

I wanted to share a local concert that Ball In The House is doing on April 1st, in case anyone would like to attend:

Watch Arthur on Facebook Live Tonight! (Jan 28, 2023 at around 6 pm)

An UPDATE from Arthur:

Hey Betsy, 

Got an update regarding my drum show. The venue looks very small and now the director of “School of Rock” is asking all members of the band to invite only 2 people per guest which means we can’t have as huge a crowd as I thought. I know this is unfortunate news. Optimistically, please spread the word to the chorus members that, if they would like, they can at least access my performance live on Facebook at “School Of Rock Watertown”. 

Thank you!
