Radio Disney/Give a Note/CMA Concert

Wow!  What an exciting night with the Joliet Central Band, Los 5, Radio Disney, the Give a Note Foundation, the Country Music Awards, and finally, the National Association for Music Education.  Phew!  

My sincerest thanks to all involved that day; Nancy Timm and Lorena Singletary put in a lot of work to ensure I was able to react to specifics from our guests that day - a HUGE thank you to them; all of our supporters that were able to attend and watch; finally, a big thank you to all of our students on preparing for this event, and dealing with a stressed out band director.  I appreciate all of you!

And now the fun part - I get to spend our $5000 grant on your kids!  We'll have some new items for the band coming in soon; stay tuned!
