The MCA is grateful to have such welcoming hosts! With the Terrys, the Blains and Ms. Chute, we have three beautiful homes where our musicians are treated to the best of care in a warm ambiance. It is not surprising that they always find their visit to Muskoka to be very memorable and one worth repeating!
