Hello friends,

I forgot to mention these at the meeting, but there are two great  
workshop opportunities coming up on Saturday, October 26th.  I will  
certainly remind you all at the next meeting, but I wanted to give you  
all a bit more heads up and try to gauge some interest!

First of all, from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM in the Southwick Ballroom is the  
second of this semester's Northern Lights Orff-Schulwerk workshop!  
Melissa Greenwood, chapter president, will present "Technology and  
Process", a workshop aimed at incorporating technology into the Orff  
music classroom.  You are encouraged to bring your own technology;  
iPads, iPods, cell phones, fax machines, typewriters, whatever you can  
muster!  This workshop is free, useful, and right on our home turf, so  
I expect to see everybody there!  That is, everybody that isn't  
planning on going to the other event...

Second, the Vermont chapter of the American Choral Directors  
Association is having their fall gathering from 10:00 AM to 4:15 PM at  
St. Michael's College in Colchester.  Conductors, teachers, singers,  
and students are invited; featuring special guest, Canadian composer  
Donald Patriquin.  There will be reading sessions and all sorts of  
other opportunities for professional development.  Highly recommend  
this for anyone interested in teaching choral music!!! Or to anyone  
that is not going to the other workshop mentioned above.  The cost is  
20 dollars for students, but if people are interested in going to this  
and let me know in the next few days, I should have no problem  
wrangling up some cash and arranging a carpool, so shoot me an email  
if you are interested in going!

That's all for now; please mark your calendars and I encourage all of  
you to take advantage of one of these great opportunities for  
professional development.
