In case you're wondering why we have Instrument groups, the only reason is that it makes it easier to email just a group of members - e.g., if I want to send something clarinet specific I can email just the clarinet group and avoid flooding the rest of you with something of little interest!

Apart from this, there's no particular function - if you want to be in more than one group that's no problem!

We're going to be presenting a Christmas Concert at International Village Mall (Tinseltown) on Wednesday, December 20th, from 7 to 8 PM -- everyone is welcome and there's no charge!

Chris' next Philosphers' cafe will be on Friday September the 15th.  The details can be found at



Christopher Ludwig is a highly accomplished composer, producer, flutist and poet. He is also the creator and owner of Ludwig Recordings. Mr. Ludwig holds bachelor ...

Dress code for all concerts is Black bottom, white top. That is, black trousers/skirt, socks, shoes, long or short-sleeved white shirt/blouse. Jacket and tie are optional, particularly when we're at a senior's facility as they tend to be very warm. At all times, a splash of red is part of the uniform, whether brooch, tie, hair band...and again, that's optional.

For Christmas concerts, we allow you to add some festive touches, such as a Santa hat, ornament, etc., in good taste of course!

The "Current Folder" content is all linked to audio - I couldn't find a few, so for extra credit have a look and send me what you find!

We're going to hold off on linking the main library (other than what's already been done) as Chris and I are trying to come up with a better library method (that process is hidden the back room and you'll never see it). If it works, however, it will greatly simplify the process of moving titles in and out of the "Current" section.

A few of you have had trouble logging in - don't hesitate to send me a note, as it seems that some of the new accounts simply don't work. The cure is that I delete the account and recreate it - only takes a moment and seems to fix things!  If you've logged in once successfully and changed your password, you can do a password reset by clicking on the "forgot password" under your login!

Be prepared for a few other changes to happen but I think for the most part we're stable now. Chris has worked to make the site accessible from mobile, too, and feedback on that would be appreciated.

Finally, a request that you make some noise in the forums - they're for us to use!

Cheers, Dallas
