Welcome Back!!

Welcome back to my former students and welcome to my new students! This year I will be divided between Glenview and McCants. So on "A days" I will be at McCants and on "B days" I will be at Glenview. When we have concerts we will have them in the Glenview Auditorium (It is beatiful!!). I am looking forward to a great year with a great deal of concert opportunities for everyone. The fist concert that is coming up is All-County Orchestra. You're welcome to take a look at the orchestra calendar to see when everything will happen. I look forward to seeing everyone very soon!
