  1. Thank you very much for your blog. May I use the winter photo of the painting in my group "Handel and Friend", a group dedicated to Baroque music and culture?

    1. The image was found online so I believe it is in the public domain! It's one of my favorites. Feel free to use it!

  2. Is this for folks in a special group and has somehow gotten to the wider audience of Facebook by mistake? I ask because there is no place or timeframe, and it may have shown up in other posts to the same group. I can't tell where the workshops will be held and what times they are each day. This is important for those who are out of town and might like to attend.

    1. There is a public facebook event page. That page has all of the information including date, time, location and other details which are being updated periodically. This page is just for registration. I will add a link to the facebook group to the post above.

      Here it is though:

    2. I've also updated the blog post with the pertinent deals and a direct link to the facebook event page.
