• Music in Education National Conference

    I was asked to attend the Music in Education National Consortium in New York Sept. 15-17. I spoke on behalf of Chicago Opera Theater’s Education program, Opera for All in connection with our collaborating partners: Chicago Arts Partnerships in Educations (CAPE). The Conference was held at the Metropolitan Opera Wing in the Rose Building of Lincoln Center. We started off the session with a lesson on learning to play the recorder and then met the 45 other representatives of Music in Education (MIENC) from all around the United States. Some were arts organization directors like myself, several principals, teaching artists, and university faculty. I loved hearing about the other programs accomplishments and strategies.

    I stayed the weekend in Long Island, New York and of course I fit in a Broadway Musical: West Side Story!
