NOTE: The use of "!!" before an entry means that this entry was added (or
changed) AFTER the date was included in an UPDATE. UPDATEs cover
a specific range of dates - usually a few weeks. Their purpose
is to keep you informed of changes (it has proven impossible to
publish a calendar that will remain accurate for several months
- or even a few weeks). If you would like to receive updates of
the Continuo Calendar, please send E-mail to gag1391@aol.com

THE CONTINUO CALENDAR is published by the Jackson Chapter of the AGO,
216 Ashcot Circle, Jackson, MS 39211, and made possible in part by support
from the MS Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
