We are not signing up for times so we can see you all interact, but plan to be there for ~30 min or so. You do not need to be there right at the start, but we appreciate an email (gssmaine at gmail.com) if you are coming!
Note: pages referenced here are from the Schirmer edition of Iolanthe. You can rent this from the Bagaduce Music Library for $3, or order your own from Amazon (~$12).
