Jim Keyes, Music Director, Delaware Community Chorus, writes: Delaware Community Chorus (Delaware, Ohio) will present Trial By Jury in May, 2003. Any help publicizing the event will be appreciated. And let us know how we can help you. Delaware, Ohio is just north of Columbus in Central Ohio. I wonder if there are societies similar to yours in the state of Ohio. [We sent him to Sarah Cole of the Midwestern G&S Society - is that really all that much closer? There are performing groups closer, but We don't know of any Appreciation Societies in Ohio. Can anyone help him out? He's at JimKeyes7@msn.com . - mlc]
