City of Ottawa has sent notice that rehearsal could resume the week of February 5th, 2022: the KSO Strings could resume as early as Wednesday 9 Feb 2022. No information yet on capacity limit or other restrictions. A contract for the Glen Cairn Community Centre (GCCC) is in place.
The Librarian has done a fantastic job cleaning up the music and making sure all rehearsal numbers/letters are matching the score: please download and use those parts! Thank you Heidi for all your efforts! This should alleviate time loss in rehearsal in getting everyone quickly at the right spot.
