**Notes:**

This coming Tuesday 4/8 there will be no class since I have a performance commitment in New York and won’t be able to make it back until that afternoon. Our next meeting will be Friday 4/11, then we’ll have 4/15 and 4/18 off for spring break, from which we’ll return on Tuesday 4/22. This information is also posted on the calendar.
