Just a quick note from vacation... I am enjoying visiting with family and friends and some places I've had on my list of places I've wanted to visit. Hopefully, when I return, I will have a few minutes to write a blog post on my adventures! I will return to the office on Thursday, May 3rd, so if you've called or emailed please be patient. It will take time to catch up!

All-State Music Conference
Message from Gina Provenzano: Looking for musicians to participate in two sessions, Friday, May 18 at 8:30 a.m. and 10:50 a.m., with composer and conductor, Sandra Dackow. The sessions (at All-State Conference) are geared toward string players but winds that can transpose to C are welcome to perform as well. All are welcome to come to the sessions but we are in need of musicians. Please contact Gina Provenzano at gprovenzanodistrictv at gmail.com ASAP if you are able to help. It is a privilege to have a clinician of this caliber and we need your help to make this a success!
