"Musicians don't retire; they stop when there's no more music in them" -Louis Armstrong

Your students have had a terrific first 2 weeks back.  I love January for so many reasons, but mainly because the students come back with a renewed energy and zeal for all things orchestra.

The second round of All-State Orchestra was last weekend and I am thrilled to announce that Eric Dukes and Noah Frank made it through!  To all of you who participated in the process, many congratulations.
