Welcome Central Coast Members,
I hope to see you at the Summer Conference at ECCO in Oakhurst California July 21-24. All the details are on the Summer Conference link. Renew, refresh and enjoy music in a peaceful setting and make new and lasting friends.
If you can’t get away to this summer, plan ahead to attend a Fall Regional Conference, only a half day long. There is a conference within a reasonable driving distance near you. More details to follow. Save the date:
Fall Northern Regional Conference Saturday, September 7th 2019 at CSU East Bay .
Fall Southern Regional Conference Saturday, September 14 2019 at CSU Fullerton.
The Regional Honor Choir information will be posted soon for fall auditions. Why not plan to review or teach an Italian Art Song during the first weeks of school and help student prepare for auditions?
21st Cuesta College Vocal Jazz Festival will be held November 8 and 9th at Cuesta College, with New York Voices performing Friday and Saturday night. This is an educational and non-competitive event open to any educational vocal jazz group. Visit their website for application
There’s approximately 270 miles form Monterey to Ventura. Please send me information for your upcoming event and I will make every effort to send an email blast to our central coast membership.
