April 2017 - Volume 20, No. 7
JMTA General Meeting
This year is flying by, I can’t believe Spring is here already. Only a few more months of school left, and then we are into Summer! I hope everyone had a relaxing and rejuvenating Spring Break. Mine was spent with my daughter in Pensacola visiting my mother and aunt. Grandma was thrilled to see her granddaughter and vice versa. I am also spending time preparing my students for their Spring Recital in May and our upcoming Proton Therapy Recital this coming week. It will be my first time enrolling students in the Proton Therapy Recital and attending it, so I am excited.
Thankfully, we have a full slate of officers to vote on for April, so please prepare to cast a vote at the meeting, or remotely. Additionally, a hearty congratulations to our Concerto Competition winners and competitors and their teachers. I look forward to hearing them perform at our April 12th meeting at JU’s Terry Concert Hall. Many thanks to Dr. Scott Watkins at JU for being able to host us for our April meeting, as Riverside Presbyterian was not able to accommodate us this year. Also, a big thanks to Dr. Erin Bennett for all her hard work on the Concerto Competition.
