Going back to the beginning (i.e., Da Capo) can be a beneficial, enriching experience. In the life of the Mennonite Community Orchestra it is good to back to the beginning, rediscover its roots, reflect on the successes and failures of the past and then move on with new determination into the future. With this collection of historical facts, anecdotes, and pictures, Bertha Klassen brings us back, full circle, to the roots of the Mennonite Community Orchestra in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
