Good Evening/Monday Morning Everyone!
Please let me offer this huge, heartfelt, genuine, THANK YOU to everyone that helped with our incredible Mead Jazz Festival held over the weekend. This festival is a wonderful ambassador of our program and the amazing parents and students that make it all happen; musicians statewide know us, love us!
At the conclusion of this busy week, like many of you, I hope to unplug for a week or so to rest and recharge over spring break. Please enjoy your time off when spring break hits on Friday about 3pm :D
See you all at the concert on Tuesday night!
