Cyndee Giebler and Mining the Volumes

On  March 3rd our members braved a heavy snow left behind from the day before. We were well rewarded by a workshop which presented several pieces from the Schulwerk volumes 1-4. Cyndee joked that the volumes are her nightly reading material kept close by her bedside. We created several of the accompaniments and were delighted to hear the rich arrangements.
